NEW YORK –The latest edition of the Sports Emmy®-nominated series ALL ACCESS returns to document the blockbuster SHOWTME PPV® event headlined by the welterweight world championship unification showdown between pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Argentine brawler Marcos “El Chino” Maidana on Saturday, May 3 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

ALL ACCESS: MAYWEATHER vs. MAIDANA, a four-part series from SHOWTIME Sports®, premieres this Saturday, April 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, preceding the live SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING tripleheader headlined by Bernard Hopkins vs. Beibut Shumenov.

ALL ACCESS LIVE, a new 30-minute program featuring a live sit-down interview with Mayweather and Maidana, will debut on SHOWTIME on Friday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.  ALL ACCESS LIVE will air immediately following WEIGH-IN LIVE on SHOWTIME (6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT) and include behind-the-scenes access at the official weigh-in and an unedited, unscripted, live face-to-face meeting between the main event combatants a mere 24 hours before they square off in the ring.

ALL ACCESS: MAYWEATHER vs. MAIDANA is narrated by Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile). The critically acclaimed original series documents the vastly different lives of Mayweather, the superstar, and Maidana, the upstart.  The series chronicles the divergent paths of two men on a collision course toward the high-stakes, 147-pound world championship unification.

Episode 1 paints a vivid picture of the juxtaposition of the lives of the champ and his antagonist.  ALL ACCESS reveals Mayweather, fresh off an $80 million payday for his 36-minute dismantling of Canelo Alvarez last September, purchasing yet another Bentley and Ferrari to add to his exceedingly lavish fleet of luxury vehicles.  From palatial hotel suites for his childrens’ spring break to $100 tips at every turn, viewers are afforded unprecedented access in to the life of the highest-paid athlete in the world.

“Is it about the money?  Absolutely.  Is it about the fame?  Absolutely.  It’s everything wrapped in one.  I want to be the best.  Not just the best fighter, I want to be the best athlete, period.”

But while Mayweather is living a life that few could even imagine, the hungry Maidana is 5,000 miles away in Santa Fe, Argentina, once again embracing the underdog role.  ALL ACCESS cameras take us behind the scenes of the fight that earned Maidana a shot at “Money”—a thrilling brawl against the previously undefeated Mayweather protégé Adrien Broner.  Entrenched in Argentina, Episode 1 follows Maidana and his fiancée as they welcome their first daughter, Emilia, born March 11 at a Santa Fe clinic, and introduces us to a family man who simply wants to fight.

“I’m not intimidated by anything.  Not the crowd, not the lights, not my opponent.  I don’t really care about fame.  I think if the fights were not televised or if we had to fight without an audience it would be better.  I only want to fight.”

From the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip to the gritty capital of Santa Fe, ALL ACCESS welcomes viewers into training camp and prepares them for what promises to be an intense buildup to the biggest boxing event of 2014.

The final episode of the series, Epilogue, provides viewers with unprecedented access to Fight Week, reveals the drama of the bout from a new perspective, and lifts the curtain on the rarely seen, often uncelebrated aftermath of world championship prizefighting.  The Epilogue of ALL ACCESS: MAYWEATHER vs. CANELO, which chronicled the Sept. 14, 2013 blockbuster showdown between Mayweather and Canelo, was recently nominated for a Sports Emmy® Award for "Outstanding Edited Sports Event Coverage.”

ALL ACCESS: MAYWEATHER vs. MAIDANA episodes premiere on SHOWTIME with multiple encore presentations, including the cable television premiere on CBS SPORTS NETWORK.  All episodes of the series will be available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND®, SHOWTIME ANYTIME® and online at SHO.com/Sports.

I'll be watching it, but I wish they stopped trying to force these narratives. Maidana, an antagonist? Really?
