Saturday night is often one of the busiest evenings for restaurants, but this Saturday boxing fans may be opting to stay home to watch one of the most anticipated boxing matches in history.
The highlight of the evening is the Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Conor McGregor fight at 8:55 p.m. The broadcast starts at 6 p.m. on Showtime with a 10-round cruiserweight fight between Andrew Tabiti and former champion Steve Cunningham prior to the Mayweather and McGregor fight.
The national anthem will be sung by pop star Demi Lovato and each boxer certainly knows how to make an entrance. For example, Justin Bieber has accompanied Mayweather in the past. So it’s safe to say, this is kind of of a big deal.
While some diners will be hosting parties on their own, others (who may not have Showtime at home) will be visiting restaurants that are hosting boxing events, airing the fight for theirs guests.
