Saturday night's fight between Floyd Mayweather and Andre Berto will be available via all the traditional pay-per-view outlets through your cable or satellite provider, but is also going to be the first-ever Showtime pay-per-view streamed online.

The fight can be bought at CBS.com/fight for $64.99, which will also include a three-month trial of CBS All Access, the network's streaming platform. In addition to the full fight card on Saturday night, the weigh-in on Friday and the preview show on Saturday evening will also be available to buyers, though those will also be available free to everyone.

Mayweather (48-0, 26 KO) is the huge favorite against Berto (30-3, 23 KO), and with obvious good reason. It's the top pound-for-pound fighter in the sport taking on a fighter who is barely top 20 in the welterweight division at this point in his career, and has had a rough go of it since 2011, going 3-3 in his last six fights.

For those traveling or without a regular cable/satellite subscription, this is a great way to watch the fight, of course, and that's the point of it.
