Viewing the Mayorga Forrest fight

I'm flying over to the east coast in around a week, for business, and was
wondering where to watch the Mayorga/Forrest fight on Saturday night. BTW
I'm flying out of Australia and this is my first trip to the US so I'm not
familiar with what is customary regarding venues for watching PPV events. At
this stage I'm not sure whether I'll be staying at a hotel of a serviced
apartment but I'm assuming the worst, that being no cable PPV available in
my room.

Here is Australia most bars, which we call pubs, televise the majority of
PPV Boxing events so it's relatively easy to locate a place to watch a
boxing match. Does this also apply to most US cities?

I would love to watch the flight live in Vegas but since it's on the other
side of the country I don't think I will, although at this stage I'm not
completely dismissing the possibility. Anyone know how long it takes to fly
from Washington DC to Vegas and what a return flight ticket might cost?

Thanks in advance.

John.

I believe this bout will be televised on HBO.  I'm sure you can find it at
most any sports bar.

Good Luck

James
