Synopsis

Champs – This epic story of the rise of three of the most successful boxers of our time challenges the perception of the American Dream through the intimately personal life trajectories of Evander Holyfield, Bernard Hopkins and Mike Tyson. Much like modern day gladiators, our protagonists come from the bottom rungs of society, choosing the path of boxing or “the poor man’s sport,” as a last resort, and an alternative to much bleaker options such as prison or, worse yet, death. Following these fighters’ paths from success to self-discovery, they recount their battles while illuminating our country’s most critical social issues, including the struggle with poverty, racial inequality, broken homes, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and the failures of our educational and prison systems.
