NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The biggest fight of the century (alright, we're only 15 years into this) is Saturday night in Las Vegas when Floyd Mayweather takes on Manny Pacquiao. The pay-per-view price is steep, a record $99. The previous high was $74.95
If you don't want to shell out a near $100 for "the fight," I called around the metro area to find out who will and won't show the "big one".
Harrah's gives you two spots for Mayweather-Pacquiao: Masquerade, a club inside the casino, at $40 general admission. Manning's is $45 general admission, which includes two drink tickets. If you get a table at Manning's it's $90 a person, but it comes with free drinks throughout the fight.
