Description

Christian and Shawn started out as opposite ends of the tracks; Christian being the good child from a good family in the suburbs, while Shawn, on the other hand, came from the wrong side of the tracks. As their lives became intertwined over the next 30 years, their strained relationship went from mere acquaintances to best friends to adopted brothers to coworkers to finally heat rivals in the world of boxing. Whatever one achieved, the other would have an equal, but opposite, achievement of their own. Each would have their own successes and failures, heartbreak and despair, love and loss. Family lost, championships gained, money, fame, drugs, alcohol, and jealous rivalry all play a part in their three decade relationship with each other. However, in the end, what was the determining, underlining factor to their relationship with each other? Is it their shared profession? Their shared family? Or is it something more? Something deeper? In a world that's all about advertisement, money, glory, and the next big fight, they soon learn that there's something more important and somethings are actually worth fighting for. But is it too late once they find out what it is? And can love really overcome all?show more
