NEW YORK (Nov. 26, 2013) – SHOWTIME Sports will premiere the latest chapter of its acclaimed documentary series ALL ACCESS: Broner vs. Maidana, replay classic fights from seminal moments in each fighter’s career and offer additional exclusive behind-the-scenes content—all in the buildup to Saturday, Dec. 14, when Adrien “The Problem” Broner and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana headline the highly anticipated four-fight SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® event in San Antonio, Texas.
ALL ACCESS: Broner vs. Maidana, a two-episode series, will premiere on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on SHOWTIME—immediately preceding the live SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast headlined by Zab Judah vs. Paulie Malignaggi—with replays on SHOWTIME, SHOWTIME EXTREME® and CBS Sports Network. Following its premiere, ALL ACCESS also will be available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND® and SHOWTIME ANYTIME®.
ALL ACCESS: Broner vs. Maidana features intimate moments with the polarizing pugilist known as “The Problem,” and delves into the life of the dangerous “El Chino” Maidana as the two elite welterweights prepare for the most significant fight of their respective careers.
Flashy, flamboyant and already a three-division champion at just 23-years-old, the undefeated WBA Welterweight World Champion Adrien Broner has been called the future of boxing. Now, in his first ALL ACCESS, Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) shares an in-depth look into the life of “AB.” From backyard sparring sessions when he was just five years old, to candid moments with his family, Broner reveals a side of himself seldom seen by boxing fans. ALL ACCESS also takes viewers behind-the-scenes of Broner’s fledgling career as a hip-hop artist, and chronicles his transition from the celebrated life of entertainment to one of seclusion as he settles into training camp in preparation for Marcos Maidana.
Meanwhile in Oxnard, Calif., the fearless Argentine, Maidana (34-3, 31 KO’s) is focused on his next world title shot. With experience against the world’s best fighters, Maidana knows what to expect when he squares off with Broner. As such, Maidana is hard at work with renowned trainer Robert Garcia perfecting his aggressive style. All three of the pair’s fights together thus far have ended in knockout victories. But the stakes are high for this bout against the talented world champion. Go inside the highs and lows of Maidana’s biggest wins and most heartbreaking losses. And experience the unlikely relationship that has led Maidana to this resurgence and the brink of another world title. Watch as the former WBA Junior Welterweight Champion pushes his body to the limit for a chance to silence the brash Broner, a man whose very essence contradicts everything the humble Argentine stands for.
