If you were looking for a ringside seat for the highly anticipated and heavily promoted Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor fight on Aug. 26, Fathom Events is here to help.

Fathom Events has teamed up with Mayweather Promotions to bring screenings of the fight to 400 different movie theaters around the United States. The price of admission to each screening is just $40.

Jessica Nelson, the public relations manager for Fathom Events, said the theaters have the opportunity to set their own price, but $40 is the recommended cost for attendees.

McGregor has promised fans that he will “knock [Mayweather] out inside of four rounds,” and the theater showings will offer more viewers the opportunity to witness this spectacle.

The world press tours with McGregor and Mayweather drew large audiences and mixed reactions, and, as the fight approaches, the hype will continue to build. The movie theater viewing option will only help.

“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger than life event than on the big screen?” Mayweather said in the press release. “We brought boxing back to movie theaters eight years ago and it was a huge success, but this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action. Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
