Good idea, let's have a fight on an already high occupancy weekend. These knucklehead MBAs deserve a tuition rebate. I'd rather have two 90% weekends than one sellout and countless turn aways.

Are you talking about the fight between two has-beens who would have made for a great fight 5-6 years ago?

Yep, that's the one. Doesn't matter. What was a comp at Harrahs is now $405. Similar stories all over town. If my plane tickets were refundable, I'd stay home.

So if you already booked it as a comp, no issue other than crowds. They are not taking rooms already comped away are they?

Excellent question, and in addition, are they raising rates for those who had booked prior to the fight announcement?

what idiot doesn't understand that particular Saturday is always the biggest/best fight day of the year. It's got nothing to do with the KY Derby and everything to do with cinco de mayo.

and what are you talking about, sellouts? PPV TV buys are everything. this is the best date for PPV by far.

maybe you should go back to school and get your mba so you don't make posts like this.

every year on derby day there is a big fight in LV, I don't see how this is news. Yes its the biggest fight we have seen in years, but nothing new.

Sorry buddy, I don't think the promoters give a shit about how many hotel rooms are occupied that weekend or the next. They care about pay per view buys like soda water says.
