WHITE COLLAR BOXING

This show takes ordinary men and women living in China and trains them up to be amateur boxers. Boxing was previously banned under the communist regime and it wasn’t until 2012 that a Chinese person won a major world boxing title. Nowadays, the most successful Chinese boxers are household names and the sport is growing in popularity.

We watch as six participants put themselves through the gruelling process of trying to make it into a fight at one of the world’s biggest white collar boxing events. Boxing is one of the loneliest sports in the world and it requires a mental and physical strength that few possess…yet here are a few people willing to give it a go.
