'Fight of the Century' delayed due to overloaded PPV orders

Posted: Updated:
The sellout crowd is ready for the main event a half-decade in the making, and Manny Pacquiao's crew is in the ring, wearing formal white shirts and waving a big Filipino flag.

However, because many customers trying to order the pay-per-view telecast were having problems, organizers said they were going to slow things down before bringing Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the ring.

Announcer Jim Lampley said demand for the fight was so high, cable and satellite operators needed more time to keep up to fill orders. Lampley referred to the problems as "electronic overload which is plaguing cable systems across the country."
