In anticipation for the biggest combat sports event of the year -and many would argue of all-time – when Floyd Mayweather meets Conor McGregor in a boxing ring on August 26 from Las Vegas, the UFC and SHOWTIME Sports have unveiled a four-city, three-country world tour beginning next week.
The whirlwind media event will begin next Tuesday, July 11, 2017, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. From there, the world tour heads to Toronto, Ontario, Canada’s Sony Centre for the Performing Arts the following day on July 12. It will then move on to the third leg from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on July 13 before finishing up at the SSE Arena from London, England on Friday, July 14.
Word arrived that tickets to the media events are free for the Los Angeles and Brooklyn events on AXS.com and Ticketmaster.com, respectively, with no information being available in that regard for the Toronto and London events.
