High prices prevent most northcentral Wisconsin bars from airing Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight

ARBOR VITAE - They call it the fight of the century, but it might be difficult for you to find a bar airing tomorrow night's historic fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

To watch the fight at home tomorrow, you'll need to cough up $100. However, the price tag is much higher for bars. That's why all but one of the bars that we called across northcentral Wisconsin won't be airing it.

"We've had a lot of calls and doing some inquiries as to the price of it, it's all based on seating capacity, and unfortunately, they want a lot of money for the size of restaurant and bar that we are. And our costs would be $3,000," said Pat's Tavern & Grill owner Dennis Hooker.
