Mayweather-Canelo: Where to Watch it in SA

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 11:01 PM

Saturday's fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez is coming soon to a theater (or bar) near you. Unless, of course, you already bought it on pay-per-view.

Everything indicates that, indeed, it'll be the richest fight in history: the arena in Las Vegas is sold out and, on Tuesday, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said advance sales on DirectTV have tripled those of Mayweather-Cotto in 2012, the second biggest-seller in Mayweather's career (the first being his fight with Oscar De La Hoya in 2007, which set the all-time record).

The price per home ranges from $60 to $76, but there are other ways to watch it: you can go to sports bars like Fatso's, which will charge $15, or you can go to your nearest movie theater and see the action on a huge screen with great sound.

Here's the list of local theaters that will be showing the fight, and links to buy tickets:
