    Las Vegas (HBO PPV)
    Manny Pacquiao (No. 1, P4P No. 2) vs. Tim Bradley (No. 1 jr. welterweight, P4P No. 8) 12 Rounds - Welterweight Division (for Pacquiao's WBO title)


    I'll be scoping out Dennis DeYoung on the Main Street Stage Downtown about the same time they duke it out.

    Is there anyplace to see the fight for free or a modest cover?

    There's also the Belmont Stakes running earlier in the day. With the Electric Daisy Carnival at the Speedway there's quite the activities that weekend.

    Actually you can watch it free at Buffalo Wild Wings just south of Town Square on Las Vegas Blvd.

    Watched the Pacquiao/Marquez fight last November at the theater where David Copperfield performs at the MGM Grand on simulcast. My host comped a pair of them for me (he watched it from there as well), although the face value was around $50 a piece. They had bottled beer, water and finger foods (chicken tenders, chips, salsa, meatballs, etc.) which was included in the price of admission. For the price of free, or heck, even $50, it would have been a great deal IMO for the 8 or 10 beers that we drank over the course of a few hours. :beer:
    My friend that went to Vegas with me last November, went back to Vegas a few weeks ago and watched the Mayweather/Cotto. They watched it on simulcast at the Mandalay Bay event center and paid $86 a piece, but that didn't include any food, alcohol, etc., so you should definitely call ahead and see what types of setups the different casinos have.

    I'll be there for the fight. Flying solo for this one unfortunately. Out of my Vegas buddies, one of them will be at the Belmont, another is visiting home, and another has a wife who is nine months pregnant.

    I suspect my seat is a little worse than yours VegasBJ.

    Looks like not a big turnout for this fight from VMBers, even though sold out and a busy weekend overall

    Joe, maybe I can actually make it down there this time to meet you instead of getting stuck on the craps table all day.

    Might be tough though as I have golf all day Friday + Saturday, and then fight Saturday night, so who knows?

    I'll be in town, but for a CET event that evening
    I may venture down to MGM later to see the insanity of the place post-fight

    Stupid fight's not even worth betting on, Pacquiao is -450, last I read

    Most of the fights lately are not worth betting as they have been at least those odds, or worse.

    If you do make it down, I should be in the Mansion playing BJ if you want to come by and say Hi.

    Would not even know who to look for.

    Should I just wander through screaming "Where's Vegas BJ? Anyone know where the fuck Vegas BJ is? I need Vegas BJ"

    I am usually the one making all the noise, and usually only one of a couple of BJ players in there
