McGregor vs Mayweather: How Showtime PPV Combated Illegal Streaming Sites

The biggest fight in combat sports history has finally taken place and the numbers don't lie. Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather will be the highest grossing PPV in history, which means free to discounted counterfeit PPV streaming sites were running rampant across the world wide web.

How did Showtime Boxing PPV stop this madness? An estimated 3 million people watched the PPV this past Saturday on an illegal streaming site, equalling a total of $300 Million in PPV buys that were stolen from the biggest fight of all time, The Mystic Mac Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather and The Money Team.

Marc Charles & Joe Marquis joined in studio by professional Private Investigator and counterfeit specialist Mike Ski, giving professional insight on illegal streaming sites who attempted to offer the McGregor-Mayweather PPV event free of charge or at a discounted rate. RFC owner Joe Valdez is live in the studio as well. Mike Ski hosts Fake Oranges every Wednesday at 5pm EST on Money Talk radio.
