The Fighting Spirit

About This Episode


Boxing is show business with blood – it’s a tough sport, which has typically found its top competitors from some of the poorest neighbourhoods. Meet three young boxers β€” two men and one woman β€” from Bukom, Ghana, a unique town with a unique boxing culture. The Fighting Spirit follows their extraordinary journeys to triumph and defeat, in and out of the glittering prizefighting rings of Europe and America, and intimately portrays what home, culture, love, and loyalty mean to modern Africans.
