First and foremost, the top event this weekend is the Kentucky Derby. This is the most exciting 2 minute sport ever! This is the first leg of the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. Expect big hats, big celebrities and big bets going down in Louisville this weekend.
In the ring in Vegas is the headline match of Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosely. Manny is a Filipino eight-division world champion, the first boxer ever to win ten world titles, the first person to win in eight weight divisions and the first to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes. His stats are exceptionally impressive. It should be of no surprise that the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) names him “Fighter of the Decade.” Shane Mosley also has impressive stats. This California native has accomplished world titles in three weight divisions and is also a former WBA Welterweight Super Champion. Expect this fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas to be exceptional.
The Showtime Southern 500 is an annual spring NASCAR Sprint Cup race. It’s a 501.322 mile race with 367 laps that got its start in 1957 and was previously known as the Rebel 300 race.
Follies is the winner of seven Tony Awards, and is thought of as one of James Goldman and Stephen Sondheim’s best musical performance productions.
Then there is the musical sort of genius that is Kesha. She appears twice on our top events list. Since coming out with her debut album, Animal, in January, 2010, this girl has been nearly unstoppable. To her immediate opposite is the ever adorable, Selena Gomez. Her reputation is squeaky clean all the way from her days on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place all the way up to her current days of dating teen heart throb, Justin Bieber.
