Surprisingly, not too many sports bars in L.A. are carrying the fight.

View as Map

In case you haven't heard, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will be squaring off this Saturday in one of the most hyped boxing matches in history. Pay-per-view buys look to cost about $100, so if you don't mind crowds and you're only watching with a couple of friends, you're probably better off heading to one of these bars. It's important to note that many of these places will be reserving seating ahead of time, so call ahead.
