Many boxing fans are familiar with the outcome of the most memorable bouts, but few know the secrets surrounding them.

The fascinating behind the scenes stories are related by Pacheco and a renowned grup of boxing experts, offering an intimate glimpse of boxing inimitable characters and the often bizarre world they inhabit.
