    Thinking of heading over to Vegas for Fury vs Wilder 2.

    How much do tickets tend to be if you buy them on release?

    Just planning budget etc.

    Any other tips?

    Spend your money on a Fury fight that will actually happen. If you book tickets for WWE Wrestlemania you'll be set.

    Don’t book a hotel, flight or indeed anything at all until you have a date and a venue.

    Helpful. Anyone know what ticket prices are like at MGM for the bigger fights?

    Even if it got cancelled 5 days in Vegas are going to be fun...but would be a shame not to see some boxing.

    Fair play to you mate. I couldn't justify the dollars spent to the missus :D Family holiday etc sadly takes priority. But watching Fury in Vegas is literally the dream. Fury/Wilder 2 - what a matchup to go to.

    I've no tips or advice, just well wishes. Hope you have a ball man. I'm very jealous but happy for you bud :D

    Wilder Fury 1 the tickets were fairly reasonable and even went on groupon. So I don’t think they’ll be astronomical. Out of season in Vegas too so should get hotel and flights fairly cheap. I’d wait until it’s officially announced and set in stone before booking anything! But once it is I wouldn’t rush to buy tickets as hotels Comp tickets especially with it not being in the summer or on a holiday.

    A man asks for genuine advice and these two thicks jump straight in with nonsense. Sad *******s just can't help themselves. Get a life ladies!

    In all seriousness if you book it as a normal holiday and free up the day for if it does happen then you cant really lose. I honestly dont think itll be impossible to get a ticket even on the day.

    I am giving him genuine advice. I wouldnt want to see a man spend his savings to go to a fight where one of the fighters has a history of lying and pulling out of fights.

    I am not going as a diehard fury fan who is spending my savings to watch my hero. Can afford the trip out of my disposable income at the time of year (flights and hotel are mega cheap when splitting between a few of us).

    Another mate was asking how much tickets would be so thought I’d ask on here.

    Any hotels to avoid? We’re looking at Bellagio but saw a few others for less (Paris, treasure island).

    One reason for the trip is to get it in before we all have commitments and responsibility ha, at the age where everyone is starting to get married/have kids...

    Let us know the price you get on flights and accomodation etc.

    I might head over with my life savings as a die-hard Fury fan :D

    Can get flights and hotel for around £500 per person in feb...less if you stay somewhere ****ty. That’s with a few of us sharing.

    Try the Aria/Cosmopolitan/Vidara they’re the newest ones (well was a couple years ago when I last went) and they’re all on the centre of the strip and fairly cheap. Bellagio next door pretty much but think more expensive. The likes of New York are down the bottom of the strip. Just be wary of some of the hotels as they’ve been there 30/40 years and barely been updated. Treasure island falls in to that category I think.

    I've been to Vegas for a few fights and a few holidays (with wife) and tbh you will enjoy whether the Fury vs Wilder 2 fight happens although!

    Best hotel I've stayed at has been the Aria, very nice, modern and not too big. Also stayed at MGM Grand for Mayweather vs Cotto and staying in the hotel where the fight was being held was an experience itself although our room was pretty dated and the MGM is massive! Caesars Palace is another one I stayed at for Mayweather vs Canelo and it was good but pricey to stay at.

    I've also stayed at Circus Circus, this is a cheaper hotel but at the bottom of the strip, rooms are clean and pretty big but tbh if you are travelling all that way then for an extra couple of hundred choose a hotel closer to where the big ones are.
