Vicki Simos / The Boxer Within
Not without some laughter and tears, this is not only a story about boxing; it’s about finding the passion within, finding something that moves you, when all seems lost. It’s about what lies beneath, beyond a person’s heart and soul. It’s about finding ‘the boxer within’.
Airlie Kirkham / There is a Light at the End of the Tunnel
