Decisions, decisions...

I'm looking for some input on which fight I should attend in the next couple weeks. I live in New York, but two weeks from now I'll be in Las Vegas for the weekend. I don't think I can do both, but I'm torn as to which way I go. Here's some of the key facts:

The NY card is in MSG Theater, a short walk from where I live. The fights include Salido-Garcia, Golovkin-Rosado and Martinez-Burgos, all good fights, but they're all airing for free on HBO as well. The best fight on the off-TV undercard is probably Glen Tapia vs. Ayi Bruce, which is sort of a prospect fight but not a great one. Tickets run about $50 - $300. I have no idea how it's selling and whether there might be comps available the day of the show.

The Vegas card is in Hard Rock Casino, so the setup is similar to MSG theater. Matthysse-Dallas and Aydin-Soto-Karass are the televised fights. Off TV, there's also a pretty decent fight in Harry Joe Yorgey vs. Jermell Charlo, as well as Chad Bennett vs. Ben Ankrah in some kind of eliminator. Tickets run from $25 - $125 for the table seats up by the ring. I already bought tickets to see Penn and Teller that night before this card was even announced, so I'd need to try to sell those tickets and might need to eat the cost.

My pros and cons of each:

NYC pros: has better fights overall, much deeper off-TV undercard, close to home

NYC cons: The best fights are all on TV, costs a lot for having the good fights on TV for free

Vegas pros: About half the price, never been to a fight in Vegas (or in a casino) before, pretty decent off-TV undercard

Vegas cons: Would need to cancel other tickets, not as good of a main event, fights are sort of out of the way (Hard Rock is off the strip), fight's unlikely to be sold out.
