Watch The Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight At The La Trinidad Municipal Gym For Only 250 Pesos

Depending on what your personal biases are, whoever occupies the top of your pound-for-pound list when it comes to boxing will be a toss-up between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. The two future Hall of Famers haven been the most dominant pugilists in the last decade or so. It would be a crime to put either of them below number two.

Now, after over five years of on-and-off negotiations, the two boxers have finally decided to enter the squared ring and decide once and for all who is the undisputed pound-for-pound king. The anticipated superfight will unfold at the MGM Grand on May 2 (Philippine time: May 3).

If you are in La Trinidad, Benguet or nearby towns, you have a chance of watching the event in real time as there are several establishments there who are offering a live telecast. The town's LGU will be having its own telecast to be held at the Municipal Gym. General admission tickets are pegged at 250 pesos each, the lowest price we've seen so far. Other venues/establishments have tickets priced beyond the 500-peso mark.

Tickets for the airing at the Municipal Gym can be availed at the town's MDRRMC Office, at the LTMEMPCI Store, or at the Engineering Office.
