I can't find a sports bar in STL showing Pacquiao-Cotto

    and I have no idea why. It's a $65 fight in HD -- a sports bar orders that, it wouldn't take more than three or four customers to cover the cost. Unless there's some kind of rule against sports bars showing it that I don't know about?

    Sports bars get charged by the total capacity when it comes to PPV. For them, it's $65 times a whole lot more.

    You want to see the fight? Go to East St. Louis.

    Hard to believe Pujols place is not showing it.

    Look for a Fillipino restaurant I bet they will have it on

    Take the capacity of the place and multiply by 65. That's why a lot of smaller places stopped buying PPV.

    Can't believe this is the only thread on the fight - I'm following it on ESPN's live blog. Sounds like a hell of a fight - they're in round 8 and it sounds like Manny is winning.

    Watched it online during downtime in the Oregon game. Manny pretty well kicked his ass.

    The bar where I saw it charged $8.

    First three round were even. Manny taking his time to see the speed and power of Cotto. Once Manny went on the offensive it was a disaster. The Cotto corner wasn't equipped to make adjustments, manage cuts or understand when to stop the fight.

    I loved Cotto's imitation of Thor. Classic.
