Solaire offers 'total ringside experience' in live viewing of Pacman-Rios fight

BOXING fans who won't be able to watch the Manny Pacquiao-Brandon Rios welterweight showdown live in Macau can still experience the ringside ambiance through the live screening at the Solaire Resort and Casino on November 24.

The event will be no ordinary viewing experience as an actual boxing ring will be set up at the Solaire Grand Ballroom, complete with a high-definition stadium cube screens, live commentators, ring girls and a barker the way it’s going to be done in Venetian Macau.

There will also be live performers and overflowing food and drinks from 8 a.m. to 12 noon when the fight is beamed via satellite, according to Romina Gervacio, Strategic Alliances Manager, Brand & Marketing officer of Solaire.

Ticket prices are P3,500 for VVIP (reserved seating) with free-flowing food and drinks, P2,500 for VIP (free seating) with free-flowing food and drinks, and P1,500 for De Luxe with a sandwich and drink.

Food and beverage will be available from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“It’s the next best thing to watching live in Macau," said Gervacio on Tuesday during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at Shakey’s Malate.

Great discounts can also be availed on various Solaire Restaurants such as Fresh, Strip, and Finestra, Red Lantern, and Eclipse. Restaurant discounts are all valid up to 12 midnight of November 24.
