CINCINNATI -- It's already being called the richest fight in the history of boxing, and it hasn't even happened yet.

Saturday's match-up between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has generated a lot of buzz, and much of it has centered on money. Win or lose, Mayweather is expected to make around $200 million off the bout, while McGregor will likely earn at least $100 million, the Associated Press reported this week. And as many as 50 million people in the U.S. could watch it unfold on pay-per-view.

With a $99.99 price tag, the fight on Saturday is almost certain to break the pay-per-view revenue record of more than $400 million established by a fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao two years ago.

If you want to be part of the action but don't want to spend a small fortune, here are nine places around town where you can watch the fight for as little as $10.
