Will be in Vegas the night of the fight and would like to watch it. Are the MGM parties the only options on the strip? Do sports books usually show these events? Any other options? Off strip?

Almost every casino will have a viewing party. Most charge $10-$20 admission, depending on the fight and if you have a players card. It wouldn't surprise me if they charge more for this. Buffalo Wild Wings usually shows the fight with no cover, but expect it to get very crowded and some places ask you to leave if you aren't spending enough money. Off strip casinos will be cheaper than on strip. I've attended fights at El Cortez, Sunset Station and several Buffalo Wild Wings.
I would not wait until the last minute as these viewing parties tend to fill up quickly

Thank you for the reply. MGM is asking $165. I emailed my host at TR and he said they only had something for high end players. I'm Diamond but still small potatoes. I will give BWW a call. Do you know if sports books are allowed to show it. We will be in town by 10 am so could secure seats somewhere early enough I would think. Would preferably have something reserved though.

Update: I just called BWW at miracle Mile and the outlets and neither are showing it.

I doubt if anyone will have this for free unless you are a VIP.

We are fine with paying. Just trying to find options.

The BWW I go to is on the Westside. Not sure the exact street.
