Irish boxer and Ladbrokes ambassador, Jason Quigley, set his sights on a world title late last year and this compelling documentary tells the story of his journey to one of the most important fights of his career.

Following his unsuccessful bid to take WBO World Middleweight title, Quigley, candidly shares how he picks himself back up again.

“I do believe that this is definitely not the end and I do believe that I can become a world champion,” Quigley exclaims.  

Touching on his mental health, Quigley shares his struggles in his past and how he worked through them with the help of boxing and the support of family and friends. Central to his personal journey with anxiety is his close relationship with his mother.

Going back to his hometown of Ballybofey, the documentary gives an insight to his up bringing and where his love for boxing began. His father, a former boxer, was his main reason for first picking up a pair of boxing gloves and getting into the ring.
