showtime-boxingNEW YORK (May 9, 2012) -FIGHT CAMP 360°, the acclaimed documentary series, which launched during the Super Six World Boxing Classic, returns ahead of the highly anticipated June 23 edition of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING featuring Victor Ortiz vs. Andre Berto.SHOWTIME Sports® will produce three episodes of FIGHT CAMP 360°: Ortiz vs. Berto II, shining its unique spotlight into the lives and personalities of both of these compelling young fighters as they prepare for the rematch of the 2011 Fight of the Year (USA Today, The Ring magazine). The first episode will premiere on Wednesday, June 13, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME®. Check out this teaser.

The series-which has been called "gritty" and "outstanding" by ESPN and "the most groundbreaking concept the sport has seen in years" by MaxBoxing-will again give fight fans unfiltered access behind the scenes of the sweet science. Episode one will highlight the lives of Ortiz and Berto over the last four months, including Berto's rehabilitation for the torn left biceps injury that postponed the bout. Episode two, premiering Wednesday, June 20, at 10 p.m. on SHOWTIME, will bring fight fans the intensity of the final preparations for this career-defining fight.

In addition to the two 30-minute preview episodes in anticipation of Ortiz vs. Berto II, SHOWTIME Sports will produce a 15-minute wrap-up episode to premiere one week following the fight on Saturday, June 30, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.

Installments one and two of FIGHT CAMP 360°: Ortiz vs. Berto II will replay on CBS Sports Network, SHOWTIME and SHOWTIME EXTREME (full schedule listed below). Additionally, the episodes will be available on SHOWTIME On Demand.

In April 2011, Ortiz and Berto engaged in one of the most thrilling fights of the year, with both men hitting the canvas twice before Ortiz rallied to victory and captured Berto's World Boxing Council (WBC) Welterweight World Championship. On Saturday, June 23, these rugged and determined fighters will meet once again, this time at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Calif., in a highly anticipated 12-round welterweight rematch live on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).
