Houston, we have a problem.
One of the most anticipated fights of the year is threatened by server problems on the Showtime side. After the problem was recognized by the combat streamer, many users on Twitter shouted in their reply threads that the traffic has frozen their pay-per-view streaming experience.

The main four-fight map was scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. EST. However, many users experience downtime of up to an hour and 15 minutes after the event has started, with some asking the streamer to postpone the fights or provide refunds.
1 HOUR AND 15 MINS AND TWO GAMES IN THE SHOW AND IT’S NOT WORKING YET NOBODY USING SHOWTIME MUST PAY FOR THIS REFUND

This could be one of the biggest fights of the year – even if there is no winner. Tonight, Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr., one of the best boxers who ever lived, will take on Logan Paul, a 0-1 YouTube video blogger.
The Mayweather-Paul show fight is scheduled for tonight, June 6th, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Pay-per-view coverage will begin at 8:00 p.m. EST, with Mayweather and Paul expected to enter the ring around 10:00 p.m. EST, depending on the length of previous fights.
