Tickets for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing super fight will go on sale this Monday (July 24, 2017) at 1 p.m. ET for the Aug. 26 showdown inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In order to purchase tickets, which start as low as $500 and reach as high as $10,000, fight fans will have to prove they are living, breathing customers and not automated bots programmed to scoop up the best seats. Ticketmaster, therefore, will require identity verification.

We call that “Big Brother” ‘round these parts.

How does it work? First you have to create a Ticketmaster account, then complete a detailed registration form. Once that’s finished, all you can do it sit around and wait to be verified.

But that doesn’t mean you’ll be eligible to purchase tickets.

Instead, Ticketmaster will randomly select verified customers from a pool of gazillion and send out a unique identification code, which then in turn allows fans to purchase two tickets for next month’s extravaganza.

For all the relevant links and to get yourself verified click here — but hurry -- registration closes TONIGHT (July 20) at 10 p.m. PT.

Good luck!
