    Are Pay-Per-View fights like this televised in the sportsbooks?
    Would like to bet this but not so much if I can't watch it live..
    I don't ever recall being in LV when a big fight was going on.
    Thanks!

    A bunch of years ago I remember watching Mayweather v Ricky Hatton in the Red Rock Sportsbook but I'm pretty sure no place shows big fights like that for free anymore.

    I received an offer from Mirage to watch the fight on closed circuit and free rooms. Not that I will be able to take advantage of it with such short notice.

    Your best bet is to call an off strip sports bar.
