Want to watch Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor from the comfort of home?

It’s going to cost you.

The boxing spectacle will cost $99.95 to watch in high definition pay-per-view, per Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times. A standard definition feed will be available for $89.95. Showtime Sports officials did not respond to requests for confirmation from MMA Fighting.

The price tag is exactly the same as the 2015 megafight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. That was a bout between two of the best boxers of their generation. McGregor doesn’t have a single pro boxing match on his record, but is a two-weight UFC champion.

There is talk that Mayweather vs. McGregor could approach the 4.6 million PPV buys garnered by Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on the sheer force of star power and promotion. Mayweather and McGregor will embark on a media world tour this week — beginning Tuesday in Los Angeles and then going to Toronto, New York and London.

The actual fight between Mayweather, who is 49-0 as a boxer, and McGregor will go down Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
