Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor as well as the entire waiting-world will have to hold on a little longer to see who’s going to emerge victorious from the so-called fight of the century.
Apparently Showtime’s online PPV stream is stuttering, Fight Pass can’t play the show or process new, last-minute orders and standard PPV providers can’t properly show the main event.
That means the fight is going to be delayed until all the orders are processed and the paying public, and don’t we all f*cking know we’re paying, can actually watch.

According to various reports, and social media, PPV providers in California and Florida were completely down, with reports from all over the world emerging to say black and stuttering screens were showing, meaning fans couldn’t enjoy the undercard.
Fingers crossed this gets sorted quickly.
