The network is ripping a page from the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao playbook — where they scouted out a bunch of potential illegal streaming sites and hit ’em with a legal blow before the fight.

There’s obviously a TON of cash on the line — some say the fight could bring in more than $500 MILLION … so, they are not looking to let anyone skim from their pockets.

In the suit, filed in federal court, Showtime [More]
