"Mayweather/Pacquiao: At Last" will be the title of the upcoming HBO Sports feature, one that will detail the 6-year road to the biggest fight of this generation. This won't be exactly like a 24/7 episode (except that it will be narrated by Liev Schreiber), but it will consist of both new and archived footage that will air directly following the Matthysse-Provodnikov card that also features Terence Crawford-Thomas Dulorme.

"This is the mega-fight fans have been anticipating for many years, and we are thrilled to chronicle Manny Pacquiao's path to this defining moment in his career," Rick Bernstein, executive producer, HBO Sports, stated in the press release. "This special will provide viewers with a narrative of how this fight came to be and spotlight Team Pacquiao's preparations heading into the biggest challenge Manny has confronted in the ring. It will be a terrific primer for any viewer eager to go behind the scenes in the lead-up to May 2."

In addition to this feature, HBO will also be running a small marathon of Pacquiao's classic fights, starting the weekend of April 17th, while also debuting another new feature show on Mayweather-Pacquiao on April 25th as well. You can expect that Showtime will start running some programming analogous to HBO's in the next coming weeks themselves, as they won't want to be out-shined in the build up. So we'll all be inundated with May-Pac coverage from every angle leading up to the fight itself. Enjoy.
