Mayweather-Pacquiao in space

Floyd Mayweather’s clear, unanimous-decision win against Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night in their huge pay-per-view showdown at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas wasn’t exactly out of this world as far as the action goes. But the fight itself, well, it truly is out of this world.

Showtime and HBO, which jointly put on the pay-per-view, announced on Monday that the networks have partnered with NASA to give the fight to the United States astronaut crew on the International Space Station.

According to the networks, at the request of the International Space Station, the fight was packaged and delivered for the crew to watch at their leisure. Perhaps the fight will be more fun to watch in a weightless environment?

Both networks will replay the bout simultaneously on Saturday night (9 ET/PT).
