In addition to the "24/7" series starting on August 27, the September 17 Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Victor Ortiz fight is also going to have six-minute "Ring Life" profiles featured on HBO and HBO2 throughout August and September. The profiles will begin airing on Monday, August 8, at 10:30 p.m. EDT on HBO.

For those who have never seen a "Ring Life" feature, you can find them online, and here's the HBO description:

Ring Life chronicles the lives of fighters as they define the spirit of boxing; balancing work, family life, training, expectations and the pursuit of their dreams.  Front and center in these fighters’ lives, Ring Life presents a chapter on each fighter that delves inside their hearts and minds to discover what drives them in the ring and beyond, in the ultra competitive sport of professional boxing.   

Both fighters will receive the "Ring Life" treatment, and the profile features will air back-to-back at various times. Here's a look at the lineup and times you can catch them on HBO and HBO2, and I'm sure they'll be available online, too.
