3 Great Sports Events

Where Las Vegas - - WHERE CALENDAR - —By Bruce Alder

1 MAY­WEATHER VS. PAC­QUIAO > MAY 2

The fight of the cen­tury is fi­nally here! Floyd “Money” May­weather puts his 47- 0 record on the line against the 57-5-2 Manny “Pac-man” Pac­quiao. It the most an­tic­i­pated, an­a­lyzed, and the match with the high­est-ever purse. May­weather is a solid fa­vorite, but, many be­lieve that Pac-man’s left could give May­weather trou­ble for the first time in a long time. Tick­ets for the fight are hard to come by; check with your ho­tel concierge to find the clos­est closed- cir­cuit view­ing party. MGM Grand, 702.891.1111

2 LAS VE­GAS OUT­LAWS VS. L.A. KISS > MAY 4

The Out­laws wel­come fel­low rock-leg­en­downed team Los An­ge­les KISS. Arena foot­ball al­ways makes for fun-filled, high-scor­ing ac­tion, but es­pe­cially so when th­ese two meet. If the teams can’t set­tle it on the field, we wouldn’t mind see­ing Out­laws owner Vince Neil and the L. A. team’s owner, KISS, square off in a battle of the bands. Grab the kids and take them out for a night of wild in­door foot­ball ac­tion. Thomas & Mack Cen­ter, 702.739.3267

3 UFC 187 > MAY 23

Cel­e­brate Me­mo­rial Day by watch­ing two cham­pi­ons de­fend their ti­tles. In the first of two main events, An­thony “Rum­ble” John­son, the No. 1 con­tender for the light heavy­weight crown, at­tempts to de­throne cur­rent cham­pion Jon “Bones” Jones. In a battle for the mid­dleweight cham­pi­onship, Chris Wei­d­man cur­rently holds rank as the top fighter in his class. Vi­tor Belfort looks to change that in a fight that has been resched­uled nu­mer­ous times. The star-stud­ded fight card prom­ises for an ex­plo­sive night in the ring. MGM Grand Gar­den Arena, 702.891.1111
