The time has come to bare witness of what is referred to as one of the biggest and most expensive fights in the history of boxing.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s fight will begin around 9 p.m. PST on Saturday, May 2 but the broadcast will start around 6 p.m. Unfortunately, your chances of flying over to Las Vegas and catching the fight live are slim to none. Tickets to the match at the MGM Grand sold out within a minute of going on sale to the public, and scalper tickets are listed ranging from $3,400 to $350,000, if not higher. But not to worry, here’s a list of some of the best places to watch the match right here in Vancouver.
