‘CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT’ – DOCUMENTARY

Another day, another great Sport documentary trailer.

This time, take a look at ‘China Heavyweight’, the new Boxing doc from ‘Up The Yangtze’ director, Yung Chang.

After a showing at Sundance in January, the documentary will be released later this year into cinemas.

These guys took a passion and a way of having fun, and turned it into an industry and a competitive art.

I can’t wait for this…
