COMS - OK, but I agree with an earlier post - football grounds are not the best for fights.

Bolton Arena - Compact but full of jesters when I went wanting to be the main attraction...

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - always a pleasure, great location on strip, only down side is why they try and usher everyone out of one exit - been 3 times now and will be back in November if/when the Cotto-Pacquiao fight is announced.

MSG, New York - Only been once, this Feb to see Cotto-Jennings, but the venue itself is great and well-located.  Just needs more bars close by, but saying that NY isn't a drinking city is it.

O2, London - will never return.  Saw Haye-Maccarinelli there March 2008 and getting away was impossible.  Ended up leaving the venue at 5.00am - just glad one bar stayed open 'til 4.00.

O2, Dublin (never went to the Point but would have liked to - only lived here a year and probably a bit young to have seen fights worth travelling there for other than Dunne) - Been to the one and only fight held there thus far......and the atmosphere I second only to being at an MGM Grand weigh-in.  The following Dunne has really surprised me.

George Carnell Leisure Centre - but it was for the best British Title fight I've seen for a long while - Moore v. Macklin

Only ever been to one boxing event which was Amir Khan vs Michael Gomez at the NIA in Birmingham, i think it is a good place for boxing, not the biggest think there was 10,000 there that night so not too bad.... Easy enough to get away from and it is right next to Broad Street ( long strip of bars/clubs).....

Would LOVE! to go to MSG or MGM to see a big fight..... Better start saving the pennies haha.......

I've been watching boxing for over 50+ years so have visited quite a few venues some very good some absolute shite.
of the best York Hall for a small hall great atmosphere not a bad seat in the house,The old small halls in London have more or less all gone the like of Shoreditch town, wembley/ brent town hall, manor place baths , Lime Grove In sheperds bush put on some top quality shows in their day. Tops now of the larger venues has to be The O2.a lot of the halls I've been to were not great but you just had to be there for a special fight of these in no order are The Albert hall,the old Wembley Empire pool,Earls court,Highbury (for the Ali Cooper fight) & wembley stadium MEN, the Millenium stadium,Across the pond my favorite has to be MSG just for the history of the place MGM & mandalay bay are tops in Vegas & a smaller venue in Vegas The showboat casino where the stars mingle with the punters I was sat next to Trevor Berbeck watching Henry Tillman " the guy that stopped Tyson going to the Olympics" he was fighting Bash Ali. I still get a buzz going to the fights where ever it's at
