HBO Presents Mayweather-Mosley 24/7 SeriesCategory: Boxing
Well rejoice boxing fans.
The seven-time Emmy award winning documentary reality series is back for its eight installment with a four-episode, all-access series featuring Floyd “Pretty Boy” Mayweather, Jr. and Shane “Sugar” Mosley.
Just recently, the franchise received six Sports Emmy nominations for the 2009 programming year, including Outstanding Edited Sports Special for the Mayweather-Marquez 24/7 series. Winners will be announced April 26.
As part of the promotion for the Mayweather vs Mosley bout titled “Who R U Picking?”, HBO will film a TV special that focuses on each fighter’s training and preparation for the bout as well as a glimpse of their personal lives.
This will be Mayweather’s fourth inclusion in the series after Mayweather-dela Hoya (May 2007), Mayweather-Hatton (December 2007) and Mayweather/Marquez (September 2007). On the other hand, this will be Mosley’s first.
