Go ringside in the Ridge!

The Ridge is ready to rumble!

The “fight of the century” between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is finally happening this weekend, and Bay Ridge is ready with a knockout weekend of entertainment.

First, you’ve got three chances to see the Narrows Community Theater put on a Broadway adaptation of an Adam Sandler movie this weekend. Take a second to soak that in. The venerable acting troupe will perform “The Wedding Singer” on Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm at the Ft. Hamilton Army Post Theater (403 General Lee Ave. between MacArthur Road and Pershing Loop). General admission is $20.

Then on Saturday, it is the main event! Feed your blood lust at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th Street) — the church-themed Irish pub will become a haven of mayhem as it airs the big bout at 9 pm. A ticket will set you back $25, and they are available at the bar.

But if you’re not into boxing, cauliflower your ears with a barrage of rock at some other Ridge watering holes.

Classic rockers Rock Show will wreck Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue) starting at 8 pm. After you put down a few rounds in the coop, bob and weave over to No Quarter (8015 5th Ave. between 81st and 82nd) at 9 pm for Rock Farm, whose moniker makes it abundantly clear what it is growing.
