Regardless, millions of fans will be tuning in from every corner of the country, from house parties to bars, to watch the boxers face off.

Finnegans of Miami Beach has a few things going for them when it comes to viewing parties. For one, they are located right on the beach, so if the fight starts to bore you, you can enjoy a quiet night on the sand. Another sticking point is the fact that there is no cover charge to get in.

The Holy Cow ($15-$25 cover)
1535 Folsom Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

If you’re looking for a 360 inch Jumbotron to watch the fight, then The Holy Cow is for you. With a cover running from $15-$25 they are much cheaper than other options in the Bay Area.

According to the ticket site they’ll be serving tacos, burritos, nachos, tortas and “much more.” There will be a live DJ during the preliminary cards and if the main event is as bad as some boxing experts are predicting, you could always just make your way to the dance floor and try to turn the night around.

Bar San Pancho ($20 cover)
3198 16th Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

It’s clear that everyone will be trying to cash in on this fight, including local bars. Many Bay Area bars and restaurants are promoting $40-$50 admission fees. With that kind of price tag, you might as well call up some buddies and buy the fight at home.

If you’re looking to head out, however, Bar San Pancho will be a nice spot for you to grab a drink, something to eat, and watch the fight for a reasonable price. Admission is $20 and this cantina boasts some delectable wings, nachos and crispy tacos as well as tasty margaritas and shot and beer specials. Just the right way to watch a beat down.
