Watch the face-off between Floyd “Money” Mayweather, the undefeated WBC Welterweight World Champion, and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana, WBA Welterweight World Champion, at Hyde Bellagio, Saturday, May 3. The fight that takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena will be broadcast live on a 20’ x 10’ screen and flat screens throughout the venue. The upscale club will serve signature cocktails and fight-night snacks—gourmet buffalo wings, nachos, hot dogs and more—from neighboring Circo.
One reason you might want to make the extra effort to hightail it down to Hyde, besides the opportunity to spend the evening at one of Las Vegas’ finest clubs, is in a recent interview Mayweather said he’s thinking about retiring.
“I be contemplating every day getting out of the sport now,” said Mayweather in an interview posted by fighthype.com on YouTube. “I’m comfortable. I’m very comfortable. I go in the garages and I look around and I say, ‘Do I want to drive you, you, you, you?' Then I go on the other side and I say, 'Do I want to drive you, you?'” Mayweather owns 88 cars. He is guaranteed 32 million for Saturday’s fight.
After the fight, DJ Skratchy will man the turntables at Hyde and carrying the celebration well into Sunday morning.
