You need to remember that you have to get to the venue, stay at a hotel, have spending money and, most importantly, buy a ticket for the event. Therefore, even an average Vegas card has the potential to set you back around 1200-1500.

For Manny vs Floyd, if it ends up in Vegas you're looking at at least twice that. Dallas, around 50% more.

My better half and I didn't have much change from 5k from Hatton/Pac-Man.

Although we stayed at the Pallazzo (that was the sweetener for her) so you could get far cheaper accomodation.

Your best bet is joining the Sky panel as a cameraman assistant and freeriding all the way through.

ther are ways of doing it and saving money for example get a package deal where the flights arent direct and stay at a hotel like the stratsphere and you will get a 3-4 day package for around 600 you then need to buy a ticket for the fight which will be the hard part i feel its safe to assume that the cheapest tickets will be around $150 AND WILL CHANGE HANDS FOR AROUND 4 TIMES THERE FAVE VALUE so your priorty should be to focus on getting the tickets to the fight.
food wise vegas aint as cheap as it was a few yeras ago where u could get a decent buffett for 10 bucks you are now looking at around 30bucks for a buffet at a place like treasure island which i ve always found to be good
you can get plenty of discount coupons in magazines like whats on which you wuill find in the back of cabs they will save you money on trips and shows etc

Manny-Floyd would see prices sky rocket, they will rip the arse out of it.

If I remember right the cheapest ticket for Shane-Floyd was $100 (I think).

You could be looking at 4 figures for a ticket, 5 figures for ringside.

Bare in mind we have mother nature in Iceland trying its best to **** us all up!!!!!!!!!

I got 5 nights in the MGM and flights for just over 600 without fight tickets. What you need for spending money depends on whether you gamble and what "extras" you want to treat yourself to while you are over there.

I didn't gamble or whore while I was over there and didn't spend that much TBH. nowhere near a grand, probably 500-600.

FFS!!! Thats probably the worst typo I've ever done. Its should read "Didn't", that why I only went through 500. That amount would never last you 5 nights paying for *** in the MGM.
