“Chasing Billions” – premieres on Spike Friday, March 25 at 11:00pm ET/PT
In this Spike original special, “Chasing Billions” follows boxing superstar and super lightweight world champion Adrien Broner along with top contender and Floyd Mayweather protégé, Ashley Theophane, as they prepare for their highly anticipated showdown on Friday, April 1 from the D.C. Armory in Washington D.C. Spike’s coverage of the PBC will go on as planned next Friday night at 9:00pm ET/PT.
The special will delve into the escalating tension emanating from the rivalry between the outspoken and engaging Broner and the legendary boxing icon, Mayweather.
Over the years, this complicated relationship has run the gamut from respectful to overtly contentious. While Mayweather may see this as a fight between mentee, Theophane, against Broner – the hard-hitting Broner emphatically has stated that “I’m not fighting Theophane, I’m fighting Floyd!”
The rivals and their respective entourages come face-to-face in a heated and colorful press conference that showcases the simmering tension between both camps. The storyline plays throughout the show as viewers see how Broner has emulated the legendary Mayweather in and out of the ring to become a world champion and his own successful brand. With full access to both the Broner and Theophane camps and exclusive interviews, “Chasing Billions” will provide an inside look that is must-see tv for any boxing fan.
