The Best Bars in Boston to Watch Mayweather vs. McGregor
On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather Jr., the undefeated world champion boxer gunning for 50-0, will fight Conor McGregor, a UFC champ known for harrying, skin-breaking punches and kicks who's never boxed professionally. After much trash-talk, finally, these two will duke it out in a fight that promises to be the most-watched in history, even if the odds are pretty stacked against the brash Irishman. It all goes down in Las Vegas on Saturday at 9pm, but Boston's bars, restaurants, and other fine HD-screen-housing establishments will be ready.
Here are some of the best watching parties and events we've found in Boston this weekend, where you can watch the fight with a pint in hand.
What you’ll get: Comfort food is what this popular Southie spot is known for, and that won't change no matter who wins on Saturday.
What you’ll get: You can get a burger served with Bud at this joint for $6 and honestly it sounds like heaven.
What you’ll get: This bar's name may sound like a tall boast, but its Skee-Ball and 14-foot TV beg to differ.

What you’ll get: This spot will fuel your fight night not just with booze, but with gourmet pizza and calzones.
