Definitely have to see this fight live at a sports bar because on Thursday Cineplex just announced they are showing the fight. They are charging an arm and a leg for a seat to watch it in a movie theatre. Not cheap $41.95.

Wow, wtf....

How much is the pay-per-view at home? Better off paying that if it is $99 and split with a bunch of friends. At least it is in the comfort of your own home with good drinks and food and peeps and not overpaying for drinks and food at the theatre or bar...

PPV will be 100 USD in US or 25 Euro in UK/Ireland. $42 + overpriced concessions per person does not make any sense.

man, I don't know about Connor talking smack about "whupping" Paulie - as much as I didn't like Paulie as a boxer too much, I do give him props for accomplishing what he was able to do with his feather fists and he did have great ring movement and fast hands.

And I gained a lot of respect for Paulie as a boxing commentator - his analysis is usually spot-on and he delivers it directly (no sugarcoating)..

All the interviews with Paulie about the sparring sessions with McGregor were always direct, even giving more cred to Connor about his skills while not revealing anything about the strategy or boxing approach......and then Connor releases pics of Paulie getting "whupped", certain vid clips...man, that isn't cool

http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/2 ... ng-session

I know there are 2 sides to every story but what Connor is doing isn't cool - sparring sessions are internal - no matter if Paulie really did get "whupped" - you don't do this to the guy...

And if Paulie's story is true about flying across the country, sparring right away with an audience - seems like Connor or someone was intent on making the guy look bad....c'mon....

FYI- my buddy is ordering PPV at his place. Right next door to ACC in Toronto. PM me if interested in joining us. We'll have food, booze, etc. Also a hot tub, swimming pool downstairs.

Q - Any girls gonna be there?

A - none of our female friends/teammates much interested in the fight but you're welcome to bring

Since you guys are so close to the ACC. I recommend that you just go watch it at the Real Sports Bar. Even for previous MMA events and boxing matches that very popular sports bar has always been packed with beautiful girls. Several sporting events play simultaneously at this sports bar.

Also, House of Lancaster strip club here in Toronto will also be showing it. Watch some naked hotties during the fight if you get bored of Mayweather running away from McGregor for 12 rounds. LOL

That Saturday, I'll be watching it at Shoeless Joes's in Niagara Falls or Belleville depending on what city I end up at that weekend.

Bar, PPV on cable, move theater, VPN for legit online PPV sub or stream from underground. Take your pick!

What time will this fight be on? I could care less about the undercard or co main events.

Is it going to be at midnight or right when the PPV starts?

As I am traveling, won't get to choose from the first three options. I guess i have to stick with VPN option. Do you have any suggestions?
