Ridiculous crowds out here just milling about. It’s not verified yet if we have a sellout but I’m almost certain we do. Way more electric than Mayweather-Marquez last year. Walking around you are prone to running to boxing guys like Alfredo Angulo, Emmanuel Steward, and Brian Kenny. There was even a John Starks sighting!
Fight start at 7:00PM EST. These are fights that are not being televised, which you can watch here. Official PPV undercard starts at 9PM EST.
UPDATE 2:21 PT
Decided to go down to the arena early. Going backstage I nearly got ran over by a guy on stilts as the O’Jays came out practicing an entrance. I won’t spoil it, but music fans should have an idea what song they’ll do and who they’ll be coming out for. You guys will love it…
