Markus's vivid memories of raising his fists, mano a mano, led him into the working-class barrios of Havana, Mexico City, Brooklyn, and Dublin, where the odds against celebrity and high-stakes prize fighting belie the drive that motivates these young men.

Far from the bright lights and stereotyped fame, these young fighters possess unrivaled dignity and grace.
