Based on the true story about the birth of boxing and starring Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe, Matt Hookings and Ray Winstone, Prizefighter: The Life of Jem Belcher explores the life of Jem Belcher who became the youngest ever world champion at the age of nineteen, and transformed boxing from primitive pugilism into the modern sport.
As he won every bout, his lifestyle changed. From poverty on the streets of Bristol to socializing amongst London’s high society. And then tragedy struck.
