The customers, which the owner claims to be in the hundreds, had to go elsewhere to watch the fight. The mega fight was on pay-per-view, which is how the customers were going to watch it, or at certain local movie theaters throughout the country.
Joe Grisafi, the Operator and Partner of Corked Wine Bar, believes an individual or individuals with malicious intent cut the cable wires. The local law enforcement authorities are investigating his claims.
There were other cable subscribers in the building that were also affected by the cables being cut.
He, at first, thought it was a problem with the pay-per-view, as the mega fight caused outages in California and Florida. Grisafi later discovered that the wires were cut.
“The next day when we came in, we found outside that somebody slices all of the cable lines, all of the telecommunications lines out back, completely sabotaging the night for the fight,” he said.
Corked is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to a potential arrest in the case. If you have any information regarding this case, you are being asked to call the Bethlehem Police Department.
In addition, Grisafi said that there were at least 200 people in the restaurant in the time — and they all had to be refunded $20 or $30 each.
