5 cabinet accessories you could buy instead of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight

I’m a lover and not a fighter. I would not even classify myself as a boxing fan, as proven by the fact that the last fight I really remember watching was when Mike Tyson lost to Buster Douglas (could that really be almost 25 years ago?). But even I have to admit that the hype of this Saturday’s Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight is starting to get to me. It has become one of the most anticipated fights in the history of boxing. Everything about this fight is quickly falling into the “record-breaking” category, from ticket prices to audiences, payouts and more.

So when I saw that pay-per-view cost for the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was set at a new all-time pay per view high of $99.99, the non-boxing fan in me started to dominate the inner conversation as I asked myself “what else could I do with $100?” Being the kitchen guy that I am, I started thinking about some kitchen cabinet accessories I could buy for the same price or less that the $100 price tag for the fight.

Kitchen Cabinet Accessories to punch up any kitchen

So, in order to help others who find themselves in a similar predicament over this and would prefer to avoid a quick $100 pay-per-view punch to the gut, I’m coming out swinging with 5 kitchen cabinet accessories from Merillat that can punch up your kitchen for years to come:
