    I've posted a couple of times before but going to introduce myself properly. I'm coming out 8th April until 13th April. It wasn't planned for the fight but it's a happy coincidence and we've scored tix already :)

    Going for basically a reunion between friends from US, Scotland and Europe and we've got 1 normal room plus one MGM Skyline Marquee Suite (we were incredibly lucky, booked it before the fight was announced and now they're completely unavailable and normal rooms have gone up in price).

    We're gonna be 2-5 guys (some joining only for parts), 26-28 and looking to basically be complete degenerates (gambling, the fight, club w/ bottle service, strip clubs, food, girls..... you get the idea).

    Anyway, I've found the board very useful for working some stuff out already so thanks, and looking forward to learning even more.

    The last time we were all together we were students and general bums, now we're doctors, teachers and a whole load of other boring crap and ready to revisit the glory days for 6 nights!

    Might even end up doing a cheeky live TR ;)

    Hi,

    So We bought our three tickets about 25 seconds after they went on live for about $450 each (they are the 3rd cheapest type) from Ticketmaster online and by that time they were cheapest available. They advertised that there were also tickets for $150 and $250 but there must have been all of 3 tickets sold at that price because even our 450 gets you very far away from action (we figured atmosphere will still be immense and couldn't pass up going when we end up being there weekend of a fight).

    My understanding is there were a lot of tickets in that bracket so if you check now you still might get, if not the next brackets are $600 and $1000.

    James

    Pacman aint had a KO in nearly 5 years and Bradley has 1 KO in the last 7.
    Thats a pricey ticket for a bout that could end up putting you to sleep.
    I like to hang around the casino floor the night of the weigh ins and day of the fight and meet all the fighters. Years ago for the Forrest vs Mayorga fight, a guy sitting next to me worked for the security company. He was able to talk his way to the ringside seats and got me autographs from Foreman, Floyd, and 5-6 basketball players. It was a cool experience considering I only paid $100 for the seat. The atmosphere prior to the fight is even better than the event. You guys should have a blast

    Thanks for taking the time to do a proper intro James, welcome to the board. Members love TRs, especially live TRs. It certainly sounds like you will have plenty of entertaining stories to tell. Awwww, to be 28 again..... Good luck on the trip :thumbsup:

    Yes it is expensive, but the other side to that coin is that at least it's unlikely to be over within the first few minutes. It should be a good, close fight. How does one attend the weigh ins and do you know when it is? That would be fantastic!

    It's FREE. Follow the signs which are overhead all around the MGM gambling area & just head down studio walk to the garden arena around 12pm. Weigh-in will be about 3pm so that gives you plenty of time to get hammered at the bar. Bring cash cus beers are $11
