We’ve had a lot of folks ask us which bars and restaurants are showing the Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao boxing contest on Saturday night.
We’ve asked around, and the answer (at least initially) is “not very many places.”
According to some restaurant and bar owners we talked to, the cost to show the pay-per-view event in a public space is between $5,000-$6,000, so not a lot of local places are taking the plunge. The ones who did pay the hefty fee for the rights to show the fight are charging an entry fee to help offset the costs.
We’ve listed those places below, and feel free to add any you know of in the comments.
The fight is scheduled to begin at around 8 p.m. The cost to watch the fight at private residence is reportedly $99.95 for most providers.
