    Going over in April, not expecting to getting a ticket.

    However, i will go along to a Closed Circuit viewing but dont know what to expect?

    Do you buy a ticket in advance? Do you get "Deals" with drinks and waitress service or is it not that advanced?

    Any idea's ?

    The CC tickets for this fight are going to be as hard to get as fight tickets are normally.

    I expect the CC tickets to be at least $100 to $125 considering the Maidana CC was $75 I don't think there will be any problems getting CC tickets considering most major MLife casinos will have it if not all.

    Just as a frame of reference--I was in town for the Mayweather vs. DeLahoya fight about 8 years ago. Every closed circuit viewing party on the strip was sold out. If you plan on doing CC I would buy tickets as soon as they are released because they will undoubtedly sell out.

    The presser is in LA on Wednesday. Also, I do not recall ever seeing closed circuit prices for casinos at that point in time. Are you thinking of movie theater prices?

    $50 if my memory is correct. I am guessing they will $100 (or more for this fight).

    i don't know if you can actually do this in a vegas room...but if you order the fight through PPV, you can connect your tablet to the TV via and HDMI cable and watch the fight via your cable provider's app. I only know this because I had to work a few years ago and watched a fight via my tablet. I also did this to watch the first fight that Pacquia lost because my ex and I were at a bed and breakfast on the east coast that weekend. There are also fights that aren't aired in mexico so my cousins log on to my time warner account via the application in order to watch them..in fact, they do it every day throughout the day to watch tv lol.
