A SOUTHAMPTON casino is hoping to capitalise on a blockbuster fight that is set to be watched by millions across the world.

Genting Club manager Will Cotton (pictured below) is set to bring a touch of Las Vegas to the city for Floyd Mayweather Jr’s £250m welterweight unification showdown with Manny Pacquiao on May 3.

Will said: “It’s the biggest fight for 40 years and our venue can add to that big night atmosphere, providing an opportunity for our customers to enjoy it.

“We’ll also create a special VIP area in the restaurant, lay on full English breakfasts and really make it memorable.”

Daily Echo:

Will is looking forward to putting on more events at the Genting Club in Terminus Terrace.

He added: “I am excited about my new role and am looking forward to getting to know the community and to develop closer ties with local businesses.

“We have great facilities here in a lovely historic building. I want to raise our profile as a social and leisure destination.”
