But what is it that makes this site so much more popular than others? Users are delighted to find a friendly chat widget on the right panel where heated debates are undertaken regarding the latest event.
So, yeah, you probably want to watch. But if you aren't in Vegas, the options to catch it are limited. You can pay-per-view it, go to a bar, or have a friend pay.
And HBO and Showtime will do almost anything to keep it that way. Earlier this week, the cable giants, along with the companies that promote Mayweather and Pacquiao, sued two sites claiming they would be livestreaming the fight for free Saturday night.
Pacquiao here," one site said, according to the suit.
HBO and Showtime are accusing the sites, boxinghd. Shut it down. And they did. Both sites disappeared the next day.
And, in a victory for networks everywhere, a California judge granted a restraining order Thursday against the wannabe streamers, prohibiting boxinghd. The sites' owners were listed only as John Does in the suit.
They're not the only ones. A source close to the boxing promotions team told WIRED that they have an aggressive plan in place to monitor any pirate livestreams that crop up and act quickly to shut them down too.
Though in looking out for your best interests, we found that you could try to use a VPN to catch the fight, but it's not a sure bet. Which is weird. That's because when it comes to TV, live sports are still the moneymaking king. While HBO doesn't seem too worried about the millions illegally streaming its most popular scripted show, live sports are different.
They're the last standing bastion of the way things used to be: Americans everywhere tuning in to watch something in one place, together, all at the same time, as it happens, live.
Cable networks aren't giving that up anytime soon. Even for you.
