We know what you're thinking: This swanky South Beach eatery doesn’t have a TV. But you might not know that it has a giant projector that rolls down the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Collins Avenue. While you watch the match on the big screen, a selection of menu items—like the 1½ lb. grilled lobster, crispy yellowtail snapper, and grilled mahi mahi sandwich—will be proffered at exclusive prices. 1826 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-763-8860 >>Read More
The boxing icon talks to us about preparing for his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr., how he’ll celebrate a potential win, and what’s on his mind when he’s in the ring.
Fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. may just be the single most career-defining moment in Manny Pacquiao’s 20-plus years as a professional boxer. The sport’s only name to win world championships in eight weight classes—a feat that led to him being named the 11th highest-paid athlete in the world in 2014, according to Forbes—Pacquiao is also a musician and congressman in his native Philippines, where he attracts a near-religious following, as well as a dedicated father to his five children with wife Jinkee. Between training sessions with longtime coach Freddie Roach, we spoke to Pacquiao in advance of his May 2 bout with Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
How are you feeling at this point? Do you feel a sense of relief that you’re finally going up against someone you’ve been waiting to fight for years?
MANNY PACQUIAO: I’m really excited for this fight to happen. I’ve had a great training camp and I’m ready to go.

Where does boxer Floyd Mayweather hang out when in Las Vegas? We check out a few of his favorite spots...
One of Mayweather's go-to spots is nightclub XS
When Floyd Mayweather says that he wants to go out, he does not exactly mean that he desires a quiet night at his corner tavern. No. He rolls large and deep. More than likely, Mayweather will be loading his fleet of luxury automobiles with members of The Money Team and convoying to a hot nightclub where the beats are heavy, the women are beautiful, and good times never seem to stop. Here are a few examples of Mayweather’s nightlife prowess.
Hyde and Seek
On the night of February 24, Floyd Mayweather celebrated his 38th birthday at the Las Vegas club Hyde. He had his crew in tow, the ladies looked sweet and DJ Konflikt cued up “The Champ is Here” for his entrance. As Mayweather walked through the club, confetti rained down from the ceiling. There’s no telling how big the bar tab might have been for this annual bacchanal, but the birthday boy did not taste a drop. He stuck to Coca Cola–not only because he was training for a fight but also because one of the biggest nightclub spenders in Vegas does not drink alcohol.>>Read More
