Showtime has announced that they will air a grand total of: (1) episode of All Access leading up to the Stiverne - Wilder heavyweight bout. This (1) episode will also be of the 15-minute variety - airing at 10:45pm ET/PT this Friday, leading up to the 11pm start time of a televised triple header including Ivan Redkach vs. Yakubu Amidu. Appearing on the actual Stiverne-Wilder card on January 17th will be Leo Santa Cruz vs. Somebody, and a couple of welterweight prospects in Amir Imam and Fidel Maldonado Jr.

How much excitement do you think they can incorporate into one 15-minute episode? Well - I'm guessing not too much. That is unless you're happy to see Deontay Wilder sport a flashy gold watch ("Ooohhhs") and lip-sync some rap lyrics ("Aaahhhhs"). So I am completely and thoroughly thrilled with this news - as you should be. Here is a preview of the episode to come (although it's beyond me why such a short episode would even require a preview).
