Entry Description

Boxing has lit up Cuba It has reared some of the world’s greatest boxers The sport has become a national dream because if you try hard enough you can have a way out of poverty and make a living of it The secret of Cuba’s success is hidden in the debris of an abandoned building Children try their best to have access to box schools. They go after school to this broken temple of the sport and train everyday in the poorest conditions; because they have a flaming wish in their hearts: Becoming boxing champions. Success depends on one single thing: box, box and box so their dream catches them with the gloves on.
