The Boxer is an intimate portrait of Chordale Booker, a USA boxing elite men’s division 165-lb national champion. Chordale fought long and hard to get where he is today. As a child he sold drugs on a street corner and as a teenager he was arrested for gun possession, an offense that carried a 13-year sentence. An understanding Judge saw something in Chordale and gave him a second chance at life, which Chordale used to find the champion within himself.
