The Cosmopolitan is reviving a tired old Vegas idea that we’d long given up on: making boxing cool again. The resort has hosted cards featuring up-and-coming fighters inside its Chelsea Ballroom and outside at the Boulevard Pool in a setting more befitting a nightclub than a sporting event. VIPs can watch the fights on leather couches while getting bottle service, but regular seating is still affordable enough for the blue-collar fan. Next fight 5 p.m. July 29, $20-$250, 698-7778.
