How Big Will Mayweather-Pacquiao Be Saturday?: On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in a welterweight title bout that is expected to generate more pay-per-view revenue than any bout in history. Pent-up demand for the fight has fostered expectations that it will exceed the records for pay-per-view boxing purchases (2.48 million for Mayweather's win over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007) and for revenue ($152 million for Mayweather's defeat of Saul Alvarez two years ago). The cost of watching Pacquiao fight Mayweather -- at a suggested price of $89.95 to $99.95 -- is a record for boxing.

Phuket was already worth getting to, no matter how long it took you.

Now, with a free 15 rounder awaiting the intrepid pleasure seeker, it's even more of a destination.

Ten o'clock in the morning, so most foreigners in Phuket will be sound asleep.
