Showtime to air Mayweather vs Pacquiao special
- Updated: March 27, 2015
In preparation for one of the biggest fights in boxing history, Showtime is set to air a special documentary series that will focus on Floyd Mayweather as he prepares for his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao.
The four-part series, “INSIDE MAYWEATHER vs. PACQUIAO,” will feature footage from the Mayweather-Pacquiao press conference in Los Angeles, as well as an inside look at Mayweather’s training camp in Las Vegas.
Because of Mayweather’s contract with Showtime, the series will mostly focus on the undefeated pound-for-pound king. Like the ‘All-Access’ series, this series will go behind the scenes from now until after the final bell on May 2.
HBO is expected to put together a similar series that will focus primarily on Manny Pacquiao.
Episode 1 will debut April 18 on Showtime immediately following the Showtime Championship Boxing card featuring Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Andrzej Fonfara.
INSIDE MAYWEATHER vs. PACQUIAO episodes premiere on SHOWTIME with multiple encore presentations, including the cable television premiere on CBS SPORTS NETWORK. All episodes of the series will be available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND, SHOWTIME ANYTIME and online at SHO.com/Sports.
Episode 1 premieres Saturday, April 18 on SHOWTIME, immediately following SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING Chavez vs. Fonfara (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).
Episode 2 premieres Saturday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME
Episode 3 premieres Wednesday, April 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.
Epilogue premieres Saturday, May 9 on SHOWTIME
