Fight Camp 360 Airing Saturday On CBS

Fight Camp 360: Pacquiao vs. Mosley premiers Saturday at noon ET on CBS, marking the return of boxing to network television.

Similar to HBO’s 24/7, the documentary series follows Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley prior to their May 7 showdown from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

According to USA Today, the last time CBS aired a live boxing event was a Bernard Hopkins vs. Glen Johnson fight in 1997 (both men are still fighting) and the last time live boxing aired on a major network TV was NBC’s The Contender in 2005.

Fight Camp 360 is as unique as it is compelling,” says Showtime Sports executive vice president Ken Hershman. “The key to the success of this series is the inherent truth to it. There’s no script, no voiceover. The provocative and intriguing personalities of the larger-than-life characters in the boxing world are what tells the story. From the promos in NCAA basketball to broadcasts of Fight Camp on the network in Saturday afternoon and prime time, the overall company support for the Fight Camp 360 series and the May 7 Pacquiao vs. Mosley pay-per-view event has been overwhelming. And we’re just getting started.”
