Though it is one most talked about events at present, fans don't appear to be such a great amount of excited to purchase tickets.

Well, what can be the reason behind this?

Seems like the charge for the ticket is too high for common people. Fans might be waiting for the tickets price to go down. However, the promoter of the event Leonard Ellerbe seems to have no problem with the number of tickets sold till now. He stated: 

We’re very excited and very happy with ticket sales so far. We’re well on our way to smashing our own record which transcended the sport.

Ellerbe still expects that the tickets will be short soon after some days and will set the new record.

When Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao faced each other in May 2015, they were able to collect $72,198,500 from the gate sale which is the record sale till now and is thrice the previous record. 

There are still a substantial number of tickets accessible even after 5 days of the sale. Will the match between Mayweather and McGregor have the capacity to break the record? 

The early price of the ticket was settled $3,500 with $10,000 or more for the ringside. Well, if one wishes to have a close view, there are "platinum" seats accessible for $15,000.
