LONDON (August 23) – BoxNation is delighted to announce that it will be bringing the hit ‘All Access’ series exclusively to UK screens ahead of Floyd “Money” Mayweather’s superfight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez next month. The documentary kicks-off on Monday 26 August at 7pm and will be free-to-air on BoxNation for Sky TV customers.
The series offers an intimate portrait into the lives of both fighters as it profiles boxing’s most anticipated card in over a decade, with two of the sports undefeated, and genuine pound-for-pound kings, clashing in a stunning bill at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 14.
The compelling collision between the legendary Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO’s) and rising superstar Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) sees the WBC, WBA Super, WBA and Ring Magazine super world light-middleweight world championships all on the line.
