Boxing will again be the focus of HBO's 24/7 behind-the-scenes reality series, which profiles athletes as they prepare for a significant event. 

 This rendition of the series will cover Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez as they prepare for the middleweight title fight on June 7 in New York’s Madison Square Garden. 

The series is scheduled to debut on Saturday, May 31 from 11:15-11:45 p.m. ET/PT. The second episode will air Thursday, June 5 from 8:30 - 9:00 p.m., with the fight to follow two days later. 

“Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez are barreling toward the most-anticipated fight of 2014, and their backstories will make for great storytelling in this all-new edition of 24/7. This is an intense showdown made even larger by the backdrop of New York and Madison Square Garden playing host to the event,” said Rick Bernstein, executive producer, HBO Sports. 

The series will also be presented in Spanish on HBO Latino. Cotto hails from Caguas, Puerto Rico, and Sergio Martinez is from Quilmes, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Cotto has appeared in three previous 24/7 installments.
