Default How can I find a bar that's airing a ppv fight?

I want to watch the fight this weekend but I'd rather pay a cover at a bar then pay 60 to watch it at home. As opposed to calling random establishments, is there a way I can find out exactly what bars are ordering the fight? I really don't want to make a million phone calls.

If anyone can help me out with this I'd appreciate it.

just to respond to those above saying that all or even most sportsbars will carry this--i have worked in bars/restaurants for years and most will not carry this unless they can tap into a residential cable account. for a business to carry this fight it will have to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-5000 dollars or more depending on the area. most bars--unless they are positive they will make that back--wont have it. look around though, youll find something.

OR you might just be screwed like me dude. I have called EVERY SINGLE bar in Minneapolis area and I swear to god none of them ever get ppv boxing fights. And to add insult to injury I asked a local sports bar I was at to tune in on friday night fights one night and they said "no, we can't show that here because its too violent". WTF?! I suggest you do what I do now; just get a keg or two and throw a party. Charge $10 a cup and I can just about guarentee you will at least break even on the night,,,and then after the fight is over you have a helluva party! Win-win situation

Thats a good idea from a financial standpoint but then you get a lot more problems. I got to worry about idiots coming over and ruining my place. I've got to hear bitches ttry and talk to me during the main event. I have to hear all the MMA fans tell me how much boxing sucks. I don't know if it's worth it.

I think I'll just have to make some phone calls, you'd think thered be a website that would organize stuff like this. I'm surprised nobody else has thought of this.
