I just went to the Broner & Peterson fights. Im suppose to go see Hopkins in 2 weeks. Then Im trying to find away to go to the fightnight event, Zab-Garcia, and the Vegas card all within a week. On top of that Ive been really thinking of going to the Nonito fight and now GBP is talking about making Peterson-Matthysee with Alexander-Brook in my backyard which I would also wanna go to. All these dates are close. Im just trying to fight cheap seats & travel.........lol
Wow, that's a heavy schedule

I'd love to be able to attend all these fights.

I'm going to Froch-Kessler 2 in London on May 25th. Which is the first fight I'll be going to (Other than Mayweather-Guererro) since I went to Mayweather-Mosley. We never really get intriuging fights over here. I was considering going to Haye-Chisora but decided not to in the end and also Hatton-Senchenko but thank God I didn't go to that

That's a fooking amazing story

It was a friend of mine who booked the tickets. I told him, I said, "This doesn't look legit to me" he said, "It'll be fine". He's been to a few fights in Vegas over the last decade or so whereas I have been to very few.

When we got there and all this sh*t was going on, I was certain I'd been scammed. I made my mind up that I wasn't going, I was going to go to one of those closed circuit theatre things instead. Literally, on the actual day of the fight was when we finally got the tickets. Not going through that sh*t again.

It felt that way. I wasn't even bothered about that, all I cared about was getting my ticket.

That's crazy. I can't imagine dealing with that in Vegas during a major fight.. lol

My tickets for the Mayweather Cotto fight had been mailed to me about a month before the fight even took place. I wasn't even leaving FLA until I had them in hand.

That would be ideal but as I'm in the UK I don't think most U.S do international shipping any more and even if they do there's risk of not getting them in time. At least it doesn't seem it anyway.

I've been speaking to a few people and they've been saying they either have electronic email tickets now or you can pick them up from the ticket office from the MGM Grand. Either way, this time I'll definitely having everything in check when I buy them and know exactly what I'm doing from a 100% legit source.

Once the press release details come out with the ticket details and all of that I'll be getting hold of the MGM and see what I can do.

I was going to go to this fight but have conflicting schedules. However I should be able to make it to the fight in September (assuming he fights again this year). Anyway yeah I would definitely make sure it's legit. Thatís a long trip to make if you ended up getting scammed. Sometimes you can find good deals like Hotel, Air and fight ticket(s) in a package deal. I was going to last year but wanted to stay at THE Hotel Mandalay Bay and they didn't have one. It was really nice but expensive.

Anyway I would look at some of the different packages that hotels have to offer.
