The start of the hotly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas was delayed Saturday, after customers from multiple cable companies reported problems in accessing the fight via pay-per-view, according to reports.

DirecTV and Time Warner Cable customers reported problems, in cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Las Vegas, Houston, Atlanta, Phoenix and Minneapolis.

In addition, Dish Network and Cox Communications customers tweeted that they are unable to access the fight.

Customer service Twitter accounts for both networks asked users whether they ordered standard definition or high definition feeds of the fight, indicating there may be issues with the standard definition feed, the Associated Press reported.

The fight is expected to be the most popular in the history of pay-per-view television history, with 3 million U.S. households expected to order it.

The welterweight WBO, WBC and WBA (Super) titles are at stake in the bout.
