As some sort of prelude for the 3-part HBO 24/7: Pacquiao vs Bradley TV series special, HBO will debut 24/7: Road to Pacquiao/Bradley this Saturday, May 19, 2012 (10:15-10:45 p.m. ET/PT)
HBO Sports sets the stage for the June 9 pay-per-view showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley with this documentary.
24/7: Road to Pacquiao/Bradley is not an official episode of the 24/7 program, but more a meet-and-greet.
It introduces fans to the career and back story of undefeated Palm Springs, California native Timothy Bradley Jr. (28-0, 12 KOs), who is challenging welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs) of the Philippines.
The documentary also offers a glimpse of international boxing icon Pacquiao outside the ring prior to the start of training camp, revealing a side of his life that is rarely captured by TV cameras.
It is produced by Rick Bernstein and narrated by Liev Schreiber.
You can check out the latest installment of HBO Sports’ Emmy®-winning “24/7” reality franchise when the 24/7 Pacquiao vs Bradley debuts on Saturday, May 26 (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
