Storyline

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. CHAMPS unearths the unique resilience of these men in the face of life's most difficult obstacles - from personal finance to sustained brain injury - and highlights how our society and their industry exalts their ...

This is a great sports film to watch and gives you more than you bargained for. I am a huge boxing fan and know almost everything about these guys, but I learned a lot that I didn't know, especially about Tyson. They had really awesome access to the main boxers that is really unusual and makes you feel like you're getting really close to these men. It's like a better produced 30 for 30 (which I love, by the way) because you learn a lot about the sport, but also get so much more.
