As the mouth watering return to the ring of Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather creeps ever closer, UK fans will be able to catch up with the recent comings and goings of the Mayweather clan with a 1 hour special airing on 5USA.

The acclaimed 24/7 series is produced by HBO and allows fans to follow the preparations of both fighters ahead of the September 17th fight. Floyd Mayweather Jr will be making his 5th appearance on 24/7 after first appearing ahead of his 2007 showdown with Oscar De La Hoya.

Sharing the spotlight is WBC Welterweight champion ‘Vicious’ Victor Ortiz. Ortiz has risen to the top of his game despite an upbringing that would have toppled lesser men. Abandoned by his mother at age 7 to an alcoholic father, Ortiz turned to boxing, and despite a spell as a drug dealer has turned his life around to become champion of the world. His story outside of the ring promises to be both touching and inspirational.
