Why the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight is delayed

The Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight has been delayed due to pay-per-view issues, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

While the issue initially stemmed from a delay with UFC’s pay-per-view, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported many outlets in the US were experiencing delays.

According to Rovell, for some outlets, the HD viewing option was no longer available.

At the time of this writing, the final undercard bout of Gervonta Davis and Francisco Fonseca had ended, meaning McGregor-Mayweather would be next.

Some Australians have also reported issue with Foxtel’s streaming service. See more on that here.
