An unfortunate reality of the fight game right now is that Golden Boy Promotions hasn't quite figured out the value in providing fans with a way to order their pay-per-view events using their computer. This means there will be no legal online stream available of the main card headlined by Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto.
The good news is, there will be a live stream for the off-TV undercard made available. We will be carrying that here on Bloody Elbow with a start time of roughly 7 p.m. ET.
As for ways to watch the main card? There are really three options:
- Order the PPV through your cable or satellite provider. That one is kind of obvious.
- Go to a bar. A list of participating bars can be found here.
- Watch the fight in a theater. The fight is being shown in theaters across the country and checking your local listings should locate one within a reasonable driving distance.
