HBO is set to debut it’s latest 24/7 series with Cotto/Martinez, which airs its first episode on May 31 at 11:15 p.m. ET/PT.

The series will feature two episodes, and will also get a Spanish version on HBO Latino.

Episode two will then air on June 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, two nights before the fight.

“Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez are barreling toward the most-anticipated fight of 2014, and their backstories will make for great storytelling in this all-new edition of ‘24/7’,” noted executive producer Rick Bernstein. “This is an intense showdown made even larger by the backdrop of New York and Madison Square Garden playing host to the event.”

The two will then meet on June 7, as Cotto (38-4, 31 KOs) will look to become the first Puerto Rican to win an world title in four weight classes, as he challenges middleweight champ Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KOs).
