Watch the Champs Boxing Documentary Video Trailer
Amplify is releasing Champs, a new boxing documentary that digs deep into the boxing underworld through the eyes of legends Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and Bernard Hopkins. It opens in theaters and On Demand beginning March 13th.
Boxing, “the poor man’s sport,” has long given kids from America’s roughest neighborhoods an opportunity to escape violence with violence. But with success in the ring comes new fights for which there is no training: champions are made and broken in the blink of an eye, and young men thrust into the spotlight are often ill-equipped for the fame, fortune, and hangers-on that accompany a title belt.
Built around the personal stories of Tyson, Holyfield and Hopkins, Champs balances these uncensored recollections with gorgeous reenactments, classic fight footage, and candid interviews with Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent.
More than just a sports documentary, Champs examines what it means to pursue the American Dream through boxing, painting a picture of a controversial and unregulated sport in a moment of crisis.
