Default Things to do on Fight Week in Vegas.

I'm planning on going to Vegas for the first time, and I want to go on Cinco de Mayo weekend. Just wondering what kind of stuff you can do or see on a big fight weekend. Aside from the usual gambling and attending whatever fight there might be I was hoping to get pictures and autographs from whatever fighters might be there that week. Any insight would be helpful.

There's sometimes autograph sessions the week of, check whoever promoters website and become a member of there fan club to get fight week schedules.

Go to the weigh ins, there are always fighters around the casino before and after.

Other then that enjoy Vegas, its always a good time

Pretty much this. Also what Future said about signing up on the promoter's websites and twitter, GBP does a good job of emailing fight week events.

Hanging out at the MGM on Friday before/after the weigh-in and on fight night you will see plenty of people. I've seen tons of fighters and boxing characters over the years I always look to that part of fight trips.

Even at the most recent Thursday Night Fight card before the JR/Canelo weekend, I saw Cotto, Andre Ward, Julian Jackson, a now fat Paulie Ayala, prospect J'Leon Love, old man Arum, and others. I don't usually bother anyone but sometimes I'll say whats up...most boxers, trainers, refs, officials, etc. are cool and accessible. I've seen Ellerbe and Schaeffer stand there in the middle of the casino and have convos with random people/fans. Have fun bro, the May events are usually my favorite time
