PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ Four-Part Special Airs at Midnight ET/PT on CNN/U.S beginning October 22; Hopkins-Dawson stats

NN will again broadcast HBO’s Emmy-Award®-winning reality series ‘24/7.’ The all-new four-part series 24/7 PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ debuts on CNN Saturday, October 22 at midnight ET/PT.

Leading up to the HBO Pay-Per-View® telecast of the welterweight title showdown between worldwide boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao and his formidable challenger Juan Manuel Marquez, CNN will present all four episodes of 24/7 PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ, the exclusive series that takes a look into the lives of the fighters in and out of the ring.

The 32-year-old Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) and the 38-year-old Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KOs) have met twice before in the ring and both encounters produced a hotly contested battle that resulted in one victory for Pacquiao and one hard-fought draw. The highly anticipated third fight on November 12 will add a new chapter to their spirited rivalry. This marks Pacquiao's fifth appearance on "24/7" and it's the second appearance for Marquez on the series. Pacquiao is an iconic figure in his native Philippines where he serves as the lone congressional representative for the Sarangani province, while Marquez is a celebrated personality in his hometown of Mexico City.

Episode one will air on CNN on Saturday, October 22 at midnight ET/PT, following the HBO premiere at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Episode two will air on CNN on Saturday, October 29 at midnight ET/PT. Episode three will air on Saturday, November 5 at midnight ET/PT, while the final episode will air Friday, November 11 at midnight ET/PT less than 24 hours before the mega-fight in Las Vegas.

In the past four years, HBO’s 24/7 franchise has earned 14 Sports Emmys® for production excellence, making it the most honored sports series on television since its inception. Narrated by Liev Schreiber, the fast-moving, documentary-styled production focuses on the training, commitment and sacrifices that prizefighters make in order to realize their dreams. The series follows the fighters and their teams both at camp and at home as excitement and anxiety builds for the big fight.

RYAN ASTON AND TOMMY GHENT JOIN MATCHROOM SPORT

Matchroom Sport are delighted to announce that promising Birmingham fighters Ryan Aston and Tommy Ghent have signed promotional deals.

The decorated amateur duo have already fought on Matchroom bills, with Aston making his debut when Kell Brook fought Lovemore N’dou, and Ghent’s pro bow featuring on the undercard of Brook’s dazzling victory over Rafal Jackiewicz.

Ghent – a 19 year-old Welterweight – represented England many times and won NABC and Golden Glove honours as an amateur, while Aston – a 20 year-old Middleweight – won five national titles among his many medals as an amateur. The former has made a striking start to life in the paid ranks with a second round knockout on debut in Birmingham followed by forcing the second round retirement of Nick Coret in Sheffield after dropping him.

Aston was also due to fight for the first time under the Matchroom banner on the undercard of Brook’s win over Jackiewicz, but a cut from his last fight against Dean Walker though a clash of heads meant he had to miss out. But the 20 year-old is hoping to get out again before the year is out and said it was an easy decision to join Hearn’s impressive stable of British fighters, after leaving David Haye and Adam Booth’s Hayemaker team.

“The plan Eddie put on the table is great – too good to refuse,” said Aston, who is 3-0 at the start of his pro career. “I like Eddie as a person, I boxed on the Brook vs. N’dou show and I enjoyed fighting on his show and talking to him about my career and boxing in general so it made sense.

“The cut has worked out fine, it didn't need stitching so it's turned out well so now with a bit of luck I'll be out again in November.

“I’ve had a great start to my career with Adam Booth and the rest of the Hayemaker team, and the agreement I had with them was one that made this move very easy. I will always be grateful to Adam for the help and guidance he gave me, and to David and George (Groves) too.”

“I am delighted to welcome Ryan and Tommy to the Matchroom Sport stable,” said Hearn. “Ryan debuted on our Sheffield show and appeared on the David Haye show the next week – that shows he has no fear and is eager to get rounds under his belt which is great to see. Tommy has made a perfect start to his pro career and really impressed me in Sheffield, he’s a hot prospect I’ve been aware of for a while now. Both lads have got great people behind them so my job with them both is easy – get them dates so they can showcase their stuff.”
