Interested in watching the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor, but don’t want to drop nearly $100 to watch it on pay-per-view?
Not only can you save a chunk of money, you can see it on a big screen as well.
The bout will be shown live at several movie theaters across the country when Mayweather and McGregor square off Aug. 26 in Las Vegas.
