Foxtel’s Main Event channel will also broadcast all the action live from Las Vegas

Foxtel and Fox Sports have announced a partnership with Village and Event Cinemas to air the Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor fight in select theatres.

The event will pit the best of boxing against the best of MMA and will be broadcast in Village and Event Cinemas across the country.

Foxtel’s Main Event channel will also broadcast all the action live from Las Vegas as undefeated five-division professional boxing world champion Mayweather takes on current UFC Lightweight Champion McGregor.

After being announced in June this year, the fight is shaping as one of the biggest pay-per-view events in history as worldwide interest continues to grow after months of buildup to see who will claim the title of the greatest combat fighter.

For the first time, fans can watch this event on the big screen at Village and Event Cinemas across the country with tickets starting from $28 per person and $45 for Gold Class.

Steve O’Connor, Fox Sports commercial director, said: “Mayweather versus McGregor is a not-to-be-missed viewing event and Foxtel’s Main Event will ensure that Aussie fans can experience this historic fight live, whether it’s at home on the couch, at their local pub or club or on the big screen through this exciting new partnership with Event and Village Cinemas. You won’t want to miss this one.”
