The most hyped (some might say over-hyped) boxing match in recent memory, between undefeated world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr and Ultimate Fighting champion Conor McGregor, is taking place this Saturday in Las Vegas with the broadcast starting Sunday morning at 8am Jakarta time.
Many expect the once-retired Mayweather to utterly destroy the UFC fighter, who will be stepping into the professional boxing ring for the first time ever against the 49-0 champion, but the minuscule chance of an utterly improbable upset will surely get lots of curious viewers in Jakarta to skip Car Free Day in favor of the fight.
There are quite a few sports bars and other venues in the Indonesian capital that will be showing the fight, but for those of you who’d rather watch from the comfort of your home, you could watch it on local station TVOne or you could stream it live for free through iFlix.
