LAS VEGAS — Don't expect much change back from a $100 bill to watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight at home.

The two cable networks broadcasting the fight said Thursday the suggested retail price for the May 2 pay-per-view will be $89.95. Many, though, will end up paying $99.95 because of a surcharge for high definition tacked on by many cable and satellite providers.

Like almost everything else about the fight, the pay-per-view price is a record for boxing. The previous highest was the $64.95/$74.95 charged for the 2013 fight between Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez.

The welterweight title unification fight will be televised by HBO and Showtime. Depending on how the pay-per-view does, Mayweather could earn some $180 million and Pacquiao $120 million.
