Starting Tuesday, TNT will air all four parts of HBO’s boxing series, “24/7 Mayweather/Cotto” on consecutive nights. Recently, HBO has been using Time Warner corporate partner CNN to re-air the 24/7 series. Now it will use another Time Warner sister cable channel, TNT.
This will lead right into the HBO Pay Per View fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Miguel Cotto on Saturday, May 5.
The first installment of 24/7 Mayweather/Cotto airs Tuesday immediately following Inside the NBA and will do so on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The final episode airs Friday night at 11:45 ET/PT.
We have the details from TNT on the airing of 24/7 Mayweather/Cotto.
TNT Set to Broadcast HBO® Reality Series 24/7 Mayweather/Cotto
Four-Part Series Replays Over Four Consecutive Nights on TNT, beginning May 1
HBO’s Emmy-Award®-winning reality series ‘24/7’ is coming to TNT, which will air replays of the all-new four-part series 24/7 MAYWEATHER/COTTO on four consecutive nights, beginning Tuesday, May 1.
In the lead-up to the blockbuster HBO Pay-Per-View® telecast on May 5 in Las Vegas when Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto battle for Cotto’s world super welterweight title, TNT will replay a different episode of 24/7 MAYWEATHER/COTTO from Tuesday, May 1, through Friday, May 4. Episodes one through three are set to air immediately following the post-game edition of the Emmy Award®-winning studio program INSIDE THE NBA, which wraps up the evening’s NBA Playoff action.
24/7 MAYWEATHER/COTTO is the all-access, behind-the-scenes pass that allows viewers to step into the lives of the fighters before they step into the ring. Mayweather lives and trains in Las Vegas, while Puerto Rico’s Cotto is training in Orlando.
35-year-old Floyd Mayweather (42-0, 26 KOs) is a celebrated superstar making his sixth appearance on the 24/7 series. Cotto, 31, (37-2, 30 KOs) has reinvigorated his career by capturing the super welterweight title and successfully defending it twice in 2011. This is Cotto’s third appearance on 24/7.
Episode one of 24/7 will air on TNT on Tuesday, May 1, immediately after INSIDE THE NBA. Episodes two and three will air on subsequent nights on TNT following INSIDE THE NBA. The finale of 24/7 will air on TNT Friday, May 4, at 11:45 p.m. (ET/PT) less than 24 hours before the mega-fight in Las Vegas.
In the past four years, HBO’s 24/7 franchise has earned 14 Sports Emmys® for production excellence. Narrated by Liev Schreiber, the fast-moving, documentary-style production focuses on the training, commitment and sacrifices that prizefighters make in order to realize their dreams. The turnaround time is among the quickest in television as the series follows the fighters and their teams, both at camp and at home, while excitement and anxiety builds for the big fight.
That is all.
