ESPN to show documentary on Rahman


October 17, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman of Baltimore will be the subject of an hourlong ESPN documentary about his rise to glory and the countdown to his rematch with Lennox Lewis on Nov. 17 in Las Vegas.

The project, which will be shown during the hour before the HBO pay-per-view event starts, is part of a new series on the network called ESPN's Original Entertainment.

Filming began in mid-September in New York's Catskill Mountains, where Rahman began training for the bout. There are visits to the Randallstown neighborhoods where Rahman grew up, along with those through the streets of Baltimore, including to the Mack Lewis gym where Rahman got his start.
