SHOWTIME Sports will offer the latest edition of the award-winning original documentary series ALL ACCESS in advance of the SHOWTME PPV event "MAYHEM: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2," the welterweight world championship rematch on Saturday, Sept. 13 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2 premieres Saturday, Aug. 30, on SHOWTIME at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and will be immediately followed by a special Saturday installment of ShoBox: The New Generation.
ALL ACCESS gives viewers intimate and exclusive coverage as Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana prepare for the most highly anticipated rematch in recent memory. Episode 1 reveals the aftermath of their thrilling first fight and takes viewers inside the minds of both fighters for what will be only the second rematch Mayweather, the undefeated 11-Time World Champion, has ever granted.
The series will document the ongoing controversy regarding the unresolved "glove issue," as well as Mayweather's allegations to dirty tactics employed by Maidana in their competitive first bout. ALL ACCESS will also divulge Maidana's unique opinion on where Mayweather ranks against the other world-class fighters he's faced. Hint: the pound-for-pound champ is not at the top and doesn't garner much respect from the confident Argentine slugger.
ALL ACCESS reveals the opulent lifestyle that Mayweather leads as the highest paid athlete in the world and details how Maidana's life has dramatically changed since he first signed on to face the champ. Follow Mayweather and Maidana on their five-city cross-country promotional tour and witness how "El Chino" has become a hero to Hispanic fans looking for someone to finally defeat the undefeated Floyd "Money" Mayweather.
Emmy Award-winning actor Barry Pepper returns as the voice of ALL ACCESS.
Episode 2 will premiere Saturday, Sept. 6 and will be followed by the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING presentation of Adrien Broner vs. Emanuel Taylor. Episode 3 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 10 just days before the four-fight pay-per-view event.
