Citing the critical success of its “Fight Camp 360º: Inside The super Six World Boxing Classic,” Showtime Sports on Thursday announced “Fight Camp 360º: Fedor vs. Rogers” in anticipation for the Nov. 7 CBS live broadcast of “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers.”
Fight Camp 360°: previously reported by MMAWeekly.com, will feature unrestricted access to Fedor Emelianenko and his next opponent, the undefeated Brett Rogers, as they prepare for their fight.
Fight Camp 360°: Fedor vs. Rogers will premiere on Showtime on Nov. 3 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. The CBS Television Network will also make the show available to its 203 affiliated stations for broadcast in advance of the fight.
“Fedor is beyond captivating as a fighter, and more so, as a man. It’s a pure joy to film him so intimately as he strives for perfection in life and sport with grace and charm,” commented director Ron Yassen, who is embedded in Fedor’s training camp in Stary Oskol, Russia. “While training for this most important match, he kindly opened up his life to us in and out of the ring, without the ego that often comes with being the very best at one’s craft.”
The special will feature both Fedor and Rogers.
“The response to our inaugural episode of Fight Camp 360°: Inside The Super Six World Boxing Classic chronicling the boxing tournament has been overwhelming,” said Showtime Sports General Manager Ken Hershman, who commissioned the project. “Because of the subjects involved – the mysterious world champion set to fight a man living the American dream – we had to turn our lens in this direction.”
