Turner Sports and HBO Sports are teaming up to present “Charles & Reggie: Toe to Toe with Manny Pacquiao,” televised on TNT on Thursday, Dec. 6. The 30-minute show, airing immediately following the network’s NBA coverage, will feature TNT analysts and NBA Hall of Famers Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller spending a day with Manny Pacquiao at the Wildcard Boxing Club in Hollywood, California, where he is training for his upcoming fight. Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) will face archrival Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KOs) for the fourth time in a pay-per-view mega-fight on Saturda from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Show highlights include:

· Miller joining Pacquiao on his morning run through Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
· Barkley spending time with Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame trainer, Freddie Roach, at the famed Wild Card Gym.
· Barkley and Miller dropping in on one of Pacquiao’s intense training sessions.

“As a boxing fan, it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done,” said Barkley. Miller added, “As a professional athlete, it’s always interesting to learn how other elite athletes prepare themselves for competition. Training with Manny was an experience I’ll never forget.”
