It’s really happening. The media circus has provided an absolute spectacle of nonsensical trash-talking and hype beyond belief for the match-up no-one truly believed would take place.
Timezones can be a killer, but we know there’s going to be high demand so we’ve rounded up the best Phnom Penh bars that are showing the fight early on Sunday morning.
With the coverage in Phnom Penh kicking off Sunday morning – it’s up to you whether you’ll brave an all-nighter in the clubs or be well rested for this early morning punch bowl.
WHERE TO WATCH IT

Over on Street 282 (#5), this popular BKK1 sports haunt starts the coverage at 8am. Entry is $5, although that does include a free drink (Beer/Soft Drink). They’re advertising that they’ll provide replays of the fight too.
The Irish Place
Opening at 7.30am, the Irish place is located on street 110 (#119). Alongside this juicy boxing lineup, they’re offering BBQ burgers and pork rolls for $4. Entry is free and it’s been a hot-spot for multiple fights in the past – boasting packed out crowds!

All Sports Bar
At the All Sports Bar on street 172 (#52) , coverage also starts at 8am and there is no advertised cost – so we’re going to assume it’s just normal free entry (woo!).
