With demand for pubs showing Mayweather v McGregor already sky high, we thought we'd share with you a couple of the bests spots in the UK that will be showing the bout and details of how you can bag a ticket to the sporting spectacle of the century.
The Dugout - London
Whilst all the Belushi's bars in London will be putting on special events, The Dugout has always been a real favourite for big sporting nights. The dedicated sports bunker has been recently renovated to offer an even better viewing experience than before. On Saturday they're offering general admission for £20 whilst premium table packages are available for £35 a head in groups any larger than 4 people. For that, you'll get front row seats, a table, 3 drinks tokens, a burger platter and full table service throughout. Not bad at all. Keen? Get in touch here ASAP, bookings are essential and places are limited.
Black Dog Ballroom NWS - Manchester
Boasting a glorious summer roof terrace and dozens of screens downstairs for those who get a bit chilly, Black Dog is going all out for The Money Fight. Walk in customers will be accepted on the night but all seating will be reserved for pre booked parties. Fancy somewhere to rest your backside? You've got two options - The Notorious or The Money Team. The Notorious package at £15pp, guarantees you a seat, chicken wings and a bucket of Tuborg, whilst Money Team deal cost £25pp and offers punters a bucket of Corona, Estrella or bottle of Prosecco plus a sharing platter.

Shooters Birmingham - Birmingham
The Mack Daddy of Birmingham sports bars, Shooters are going all out for this huge one off event. Whilst walk ins will be accepted if space permits, bookings are essential for anyone wanting to guarantee entry and seating. Packages costing £20pp are available which contain either a hotdog or burger, 2 cans of Coors Light and VIP seating for the main event. You can bag your spot in front of the projector screen by booking at Shooters Birmingham right here.
Flanagan's Apple - Liverpool
Short on dosh and don't fancy paying to get in just to watch the fight? Flanagan's Apple should be right up your street as walk ins will be allowed free of charge all evening. Expect this Irish pub in the heart of Liverpool's Mathew Street to be jumping come fight time. Food is being served all night whilst special offers are available to pre booked groups of over 5 people.
Southbank Bar - Nottingham
Nottingham's premium sports spot, Southbank Bar is all about great service and an amazing experience. One HUGE screen and 20 odd smaller 4K TVs mean you're never short of a cracking ultra definition view of the action whilst the booth service means you never have to lift a finger as you drink in all the drama from Vegas. Early birds are now sold out but general admission can be bagged for just a £10. You can bag your tickets to Southbank Bar Nottingham right here.
