Showtime Sports will once again produce an All Access documentary mini-series in advance of the pay per view title rematch between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Marcos Maidana on Sep. 13 in Las Vegas. All Access: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2 will premier Saturday, Aug. 30, on Showtime at 9:30 p.m. EST/PST and will be immediately followed by a special Saturday installment of ShoBox: The New Generation

All Access gives viewers intimate and exclusive coverage as Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana prepare for a rematch of their surprisingly close and hard-fought first bout in May.  Episode 1 will reveal the aftermath of their first fight and takes viewers inside the minds of both fighters for what will be only the second rematch Mayweather, the undefeated 11-Time world champion, has ever granted.   

The series will document the ongoing controversy regarding the unresolved “glove issue,” as well as Mayweather’s allegations to dirty tactics employed by Maidana in their competitive first bout. All Access will also divulge Maidana’s unique opinion on where Mayweather ranks against the other world-class fighters he’s faced.  

As expected, All Access will also help Mayweather showcase his opulent lifestyle the highest paid athlete in the world as well as details how Maidana’s life has dramatically changed since he first signed on to face the champ. All Access will follow Mayweather and Maidana on their five-city cross-country promotional tour and witness how “El Chino” has become a hero to many Latino fight fans looking for someone to finally defeat the undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather. 

Emmy Award-winning actor Barry Pepper returns as the voice of All Access.  

Episode 2 will premiere Saturday, Sept. 6 and will be followed by Adrien Broner vs. Emanuel Taylor. Episode 3 premieres Wednesday, Sept.10, just three days before the four-fight pay-per-view event.  

All three episodes will be produced in Spanish and will premiere on FOX Deportes.  For more information regarding the schedule for FOX Deportes, please visit http://www.foxdeportes.com/tvschedule
