Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Viewing Party

The term “fight of the century” gets thrown around a lot, but the upcoming bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao genuinely fits the bill. The fight has been building for over six years and, with boxing’s popularity waning, there may never be another like it. Sure, both boxers are a bit past their prime -- hell, Pacquiao is serving his second term in the Phillipine congress -- but it will be the biggest test either fighter has ever faced.

You probably can’t be there in person, but if you want the casino fight experience you can catch it at the Casino Arizona, 542 North 92nd Street in Scottsdale, viewing party. Doors open at 5 p.m. Tickets start at $50 and are available at
