Fighting For A City

Filmed over two years, Fighting For A City follows the story of Leeds featherweight boxer, Josh Warrington, as he pursues his dream of winning the IBF world title.

The film captures the sacrifice and struggles involved in getting Josh to this point and will also look at the aftermath of the clash between Warrington and Selby once the outcome is known.

“Beautifully shot reminder that raw drama, poignant vulnerability and riveting characters define boxing at its best.”
The Guardian
