HBO Ready To Climb Through Ropes With 'Mayweather/Marquez 24/7'

HBO Sports's Emmy Award-winning 24/7 reality franchise takes aim at the upcoming bout between Floyd Mayweather and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Debuting June 27 at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT), Mayweather/Marquez 24/7 spotlights a host of storylines, with Mayweather, the sport's most irrepressible superstar, returning after an 18-month absence to face Marquez, one of the sweet science's most- accomplished performers, as they prepare for their July 18 welterweight pay-per-view showdown in Las Vegas.
The second and third installments of Mayweather/Marquez 24/7 will premiere on subsequent Saturdays -- July 4 at 9:45 p.m. and July 11 at 10 p.m. The finale is scheduled to debut July 17 at 9:30 p.m., the night before the bout. All four episodes will have multiple replay dates on HBO, and the series will also be available on HBO On Demand.
"This latest edition of 24/7 features all the ingredients that we look for in greenlighting the 24/7 franchise: big-time boxing stars, engaging storylines and in Floyd's case, a larger-than-life personality that is tailor-made for reality television," said HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg in announcing the show. "This fight is sure to generate a lot of interest, and we hope to present another compelling television program."
Mayweather-Marquez 24/7 is the latest installment of the franchise that began in 2007 on HBO with De La Hoya/Mayweather 24/7 and Mayweather/Hatton 24/7. The series continued in 2008 with Calzaghe/Jones 24/7 and De La Hoya/Pacquiao 24/7 and resumed in 2009 with Pacquiao/Hatton 24/7.
