    Big fight the end of November. Was debating for weeks but finally pulled the trigger. Will be my first fight in Vegas. Anyone going? Anyone been to an event at the new T Mobile Arena? I am wondering what to do abt tickets. Should I get them now or wait and try and scalp them at the arena? I would do it now but the tix I think I want are sold out at the box office site.

    I went to my first boxing match ever in April, Pacquio's last fight and I saw this one too. I'll be in Vegas at that time as well and was thinking about it for a different Vegas boxing experience. LOL. I haven't yet looked at tix but am curious as to the responses of others as well.

    Fight looks a cracker. Seriously considering going myself.

    Mrs doesn't fancy it much though so might need find her something to do.

    Went to Pacquiao /Bradley 2 at MGM in 2014 and was a great experience. Just went along too early and had to sit through about 8 fights. Try and time it to get there for the final 3 or 4 as can be a long day otherwise. Great build up around the arena on the day so worth soaking that up.

    Yeah, the undercard is not strong. 4 fights on the PPV. Not sure how many fights in total. I'm not sure how much interest I have in seeing guys who I'll never see again. Doors open at 2:30, which seems early when the main event won't start till abt 8 I imagine.
