LAS VEGAS - NOVEMBER 13: WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto poses during the weigh-in for his bout against Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 13, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It's not enough for Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto to rule on pay-per-view. They want to reign over movie theaters as well.

(That was a pun on the Ring Kings name given to the event. Not too shabby, eh?)

Fathom Events is making the May 5 card, which also features a big co-feature pitting Saul "Canelo" Alvarez against "Sugar" Shane Mosley, available all across the U.S. on the big screen. For around $20, you can watch the fights in the theater, presumably in the company of other boxing fans.

Tickets are available for purchase online right now. You can check out the list of participating theaters here. It looks like 47 of the 50 states have places showing the fight (apparently there's no love for the sweet science in Maine, Vermont and Wyoming), so there should be someplace within a reasonable driving distance for most people.

Before you ask, we don't get anything from pimping the theater broadcast. But we did send Uatu out to watch a card this way in the past (and you can read his account as proof), so we know it's a good experience. Certainly beats paying $50 to watch it without friends to split the bill.
