Fighting Chance gets to close quarters with those involved in every day British boxing. It goes behind the scenes at shows and into gyms to meet starry-eyed young men dreaming of world titles, hard-nosed pros surviving another pay day, and veteran trainers who have seen it all and sometimes wish they hadn't. They say this brutal trade provides them with an escape from a life of crime and drugs and an opportunity to find self-respect. All recognize the possible cost, but maintain it is a risk worth taking. Some never rid themselves of the demons and reveal all here.
