Price to show big boxing match too steep for Illinois Valley establishments

Are you going to watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight live on Saturday night? If yes, where are you watching it?

Buffalo Wild Wings won’t have it in Peru. In fact according to their website, only one of their restaurants is showing the fight in Illinois and that’s in Warrenville. Waterstreet Pub in Peru is also taking a pass on having the fight on. One bar owner in the Illinois Valley mentioned the cost to buy the fight being over four thousand dollars.

If you want to watch it in the comforts of your own home, Comcast and DirectTV are charging $90.
