SHOWTIME'S ALL ACCESS: TROUT-COTTO PREMIERES ON FRIDAY
Press Release: Showtime Sports will take viewers behind the scenes and into the lives of Miguel Cotto and Austin Trout with All Access: Cotto vs. Trout as they push themselves towards their Dec. 1st showdown at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The fight will be shown on Showtime, but first, All Access will premiere Friday, Nov. 16th at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT with multiple replays on CBS Sports Network, Showtime and Showtime Extreme. The show will document everything from the intense to the intimate as Cotto and Trout prepare for twelve rounds of boxing at its highest level. All Access gives viewers an all-encompassing glimpse into the lives, sparring and training camp of these world-class boxers.
Episode one documents Cotto’s training camp from the mountains of Big Bear, Calif., to the heat of Orlando, Fla., where the pound-for-pound mainstay completes his camp. Viewers will also be on hand in Las Cruces, N.M., Trout's home and camp. The WBA junior middleweight regular titlist, Trout (25-0, 14 KO’s) has made three successful defenses of his title and hopes a win over Cotto will solidify him as one of the sport’s premier fighters.
Featured in All Access will be trainers Pedro Diaz (Cotto) and Louie Burke (Trout), as well as family members, nutritionists and nearly every vital component on the path to Madison Square Garden.
Following the Dec. 1 fight, Epilogue peels back the curtain and takes viewers inside the fight week build-up and offers a rare glimpse into the raw emotion and drama during the fight. Epilogue premieres on Saturday, Dec. 15th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime, immediately before Amir Khan vs. Carlos Molina in a twelve-round junior welterweight bout.
