Demand for tickets has been so high that the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor world tour stop in Toronto had to be changed.
Nearly 30,000 tickets were given away for the tour stops in Los Angeles and New York next week, per a press release sent out Saturday. The Toronto event on Wednesday has been moved to the Budweiser Stage from the Sony Centre.
The tour begins Tuesday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. It then moves to Toronto on Wednesday and then Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday. On Friday, Mayweather and McGregor will be at SSE Arena in London.
The two biggest superstars in boxing and MMA, respectively, will meet in a boxing match Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It is primed to be one of the biggest combat sports events of all time.
