"At the core of every great story, there is often despair and hope, conflict and redemption and uncanny twists of fate. It’s often said that these stories - you can’t make this stuff up.” -Bernard Hopkins

Fighting For Life is the story of a teenager sentenced to life in prison without parole who somehow starts a family behind bars and trains a fellow inmate to go on and become a world champion-- One of the best boxers of his generation. This is a love story between a man and a woman, who patiently waits for decades, and an athlete who carries his mentor’s dreams and makes them a reality on the outside. It’s a quest for redemption filled with perseverance and pain, tragedy and triumph. A crime committed back in 1970 that cost “Smokey” Wilson his life… or did it?
