MANILA, Philippines – Want to watch the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr. live this weekend?

Aside from movie houses, several hotels and restaurants are offering “front-row” seats to the much-awaited boxing match, which will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, June 9 (Sunday in Manila).

They may not be able to provide screens as large as those in cinemas, but these places are guaranteed to serve better food, which may be a huge factor to consider for some.
