While some of you may be heading out to the bar or a friend's house to catch the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, others among you may prefer a quiet night watching and studying the fight by yourself.

If you are an analytical fan, you probably prefer watching the biggest events by yourself or with a small group of like-minded students of the sweet science, where you can concentrate and focus on the details of the bout.

So for you, I've compiled a full online guide to accompany you during the fight, namely websites and Twitter accounts you'll want to follow.

Or you could go to the bar and have your view obstructed by some drunken idiot who continuously thinks the wrong fighter won the round and doesn't know Bradley's first name.

It's your call.


Live Stream

According to, the fight will be streamed at Top Rank's website.


Dan Rafael

ESPN's boxing guru is a must-follow on Twitter for any major bout, or any other time you need information on the sport. He'll file information on the undercard, provide his round winners and offer instant analysis as he goes.

He's worth a follow.


HBO Boxing

HBO Boxing has a Twitter account you should follow. They have a blog you might want to check out as well. And seeing as this fight is an HBO PPV event, they'll likely have some fun little tidbits before and during the fight as well.


Bleacher Report

I know, I know, I don't need to tell you this, but you really should be checking in with the Bleacher Report boxing page for analysis all throughout the fight. Some of B/R's finest will be providing insight into the match and be ready with some fresh opinion and perspective after the fight comes to an end. 


Chris Mannix

While this Sports Illustrated scribe spends his time split between covering basketball and hockey, he's still a good follow on Twitter. Be sure to hit him up before, during and after the fight. 


Lance Pugmire and the Los Angeles Times

Lance Pugmire provided a nice round-by-round recap of the Floyd Mayweather versus Miguel Cotto fight, and I'm hoping he does the same for this bout. In all, the Los Angeles Times does a good job providing content for the bigger draws, so be sure to check out their coverage.


Kevin Iole

Kevin Iole holds it down for Yahoo! Sports as both a boxing and MMA writer. He's definitely worth a follow on Twitter for analysis during and after the fight.


Hit me up on Twitter—my tweets pack more punch than Junior dos Santos.
