This is the first of SHOWTIME’s four highly anticipated episodes brought to fight fans surrounding the ‘Fight of the Century’ between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.

Not only is the fight set to break all boxing monetary records, the winner could well be destined to be declared one of the greatest – if not the greatest – boxers of their generation.

This is about a whole lot more than pound-for-pound supremacy. This is one for the record books, folks…

Each 30-minute episode is set to document and explore the lives of each fighter as their May 2nd encounter nears.

This first episode takes a close look into the life, times and career of Floyd Mayweather, dating back to his early amateur days before he became known for being the planet’s highest paid athlete.

Episode 1 can be caught again immediately following Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Andrezj Fonfara. The next 3 episodes are scheduled to be aired on SHOWTIME on the following dates:

Episode 2: Saturday, April 25th
