Despite criticisms of the event itself, many fight fans still paid $49.99 for Sunday’s Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul boxing spectacle. Unfortunately, many of them were met with disappointment after experiencing several stream crashes mid-broadcast.

And as expected, some have called on the network to give their money back.

As the card commenced, Showtime officials did promise its viewers that they were “working diligently” to solve the ongoing issues.

“We are aware that some customers have been having trouble accessing tonight’s Pay Per View event on SHOWTIME.com,” Showtime fficials said (via MMA Fighting). “We are working diligently to resolve the issue and will redress customers appropriately.”

The problem seemed to be a recurring one for many throughout the entire broadcast. The network later tweeted out that it was considering issuing possible refunds for those who weren't able to properly access the stream.

Mayweather and Paul fought out through all eight rounds. No official winner was announced, but Floyd Jr. was the consensus winner in pretty much everyone’s eyes.
