Who fought Manny Paquiao? That's the best we could do for a question inherently about Nevada? I have several possibly topics infinitely more appropriate: nuclear testing, 'Battle Born', MGM fire, Binions/Rio home of World Series of Poker, McCarran Airport, other NV cities (Winnemucca, Elko), Reno's nickname, and any trivia about any of a dozen well-known casinos.
