A major blow in Sunday night’s fight featuring YouTube creator Logan Paul and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. landed before a single punch was thrown.
Showtime’s pay-per-view service was down for some TV and streaming customers after 8 p.m. ET Sunday before an undercard fight between fighters Badou Jack and Dervin Colina. The undercard match was still available on other services, including the streaming platform Fanmio.
The outage happened before Sunday’s main event, the fight between Paul and Mayweather, who were scheduled to square off in Hard Rock Stadium at Miami Gardens, Fla., before midnight.
Showtime is working with some customers who have requested refunds, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Mayweather and Paul boxed an eight-round exhibition; the bout was not scored, and no winner was declared.
