Showtime announced today that is will produce a two-episode run of it's "docu-series," Fight Camp 360° for the Andre Berto-Victor Ortiz rematch.

Both fighters have interesting stories, so the series has potential. It debuts on Showtime Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. Replays will be shown on CBS Sports Network. Welterweights Berto and Ortiz fight on Feb. 11. Ortiz won the first bout in what was regarded as an upset.

Here's a quote from a Showtime press release and the Fight Camp schedule:

“If you look at the level of promotion and support that we are putting into Ortiz-Berto II, you’d assume that Feb. 11 was a pay-per-view event,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports. “Producing an Ortiz-Berto II version of FIGHT CAMP 360° allows fight fans to get excited about a fight that comes without the pay-per-view price tag, just as the network did with FIGHT CAMP 360°: Inside the Super Six World Boxing Classic. Both Victor and Andre have astounding background stories–not to mention a lot to prove on Feb. 11–so I expect the series to be captivating to our core boxing audience and general sports fans alike.”
