Netflix reveals a new original documentary with CounterPunch, where it explores the world of boxing and features young boxers who are determined to make a name for themselves alongside the sport’s most remembered and revered champions.

Directed by Jay Bulger — who happens to be an amateur boxer as well — expresses, “Many years after hanging up the gloves, I set out to capture the state of boxing in America, following three boxers, in three different chapters of a boxing career. When combined, I hope they provide a complete picture of the sport today.”

Discipline, sweat, heartbreak and triumph are all on full display in CounterPunch which is set to premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Thursday, June 15 and finally on Netflix starting Friday, June 16.

In more Netflix news, view the trailer for Ozark premiering on Friday, July 21.
