Pacquiao-Marquez 24/7 Television Schedule For CNN

CNN will again broadcast HBO’s Emmy-Award®-winning reality series ‘24/7.’ The all-new four-part series 24/7 PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ debuts on CNN Saturday, October 22 at midnight ET/PT.

Leading up to the HBO Pay-Per-View® telecast of the welterweight title showdown between worldwide boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao and his formidable challenger Juan Manuel Marquez, CNN will present all four episodes of 24/7 PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ, the exclusive series that takes a look into the lives of the fighters in and out of the ring.

The 32-year-old Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) and the 38-year-old Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KOs) have met twice before in the ring and both encounters produced a hotly contested battle that resulted in one victory for Pacquiao and one hard-fought draw.  The highly anticipated third fight on November 12 will add a new chapter to their spirited rivalry.  This marks Pacquiao's fifth appearance on "24/7" and it's the second appearance for Marquez on the series. Pacquiao is an iconic figure in his native Philippines where he serves as the lone congressional representative for the Sarangani province, while Marquez is a celebrated personality in his hometown of Mexico City.

Episode one will air on CNN on Saturday, October 22 at midnight ET/PT, following the HBO premiere at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Episode two will air on CNN on Saturday, October 29 at midnight ET/PT.  Episode three will air on Saturday, November 5 at midnight ET/PT, while the final episode will air Friday, November 11 at midnight 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, making it the most honored sports series on television since its inception.   Narrated by Liev Schreiber, the fast-moving, documentary-styled production focuses on the training, commitment and sacrifices that prizefighters make in order to realize their dreams.   The series follows the fighters and their teams both at camp and at home as excitement and anxiety builds for the big fight.

How can you call an average of $ 20 Million per fight revenue peanuts? Are you out of your mind? How can somebody accused anybody of using STEROIDS that BOXING COMMISSION can not find?

Mayweather/Ortiz PPV a record low for a well advertised event. HBO is not revealing the true PPV sold yet because it is too embarrassing. A reliable source states that the PPV sold was at a mere 500K.
