Synopsis

March 2016: boxer Chris Eubank Jr stops his opponent Nick Blackwell in round ten of a British title fight. Blackwell, having collapsed in the ring, then dies momentarily in the back of an ambulance, before being brought back to life. He remains in a coma for seven days. The boxing world is thrown into turmoil. The lives of the protagonists and the witnesses are changed forever.



Journalist and lifelong boxing fan Elliot Worsell was ringside that night and in the dressing rooms in the immediate aftermath. What he saw and heard would transform his view of the sport he loves and force him to question his own complicity.



In Dog Rounds, Worsell goes in search of boxers who have killed in the ring. Spending time with these pariahs and returning to the venues in which tragedies occurred, Worsell reveals the extent of the devastation left behind. In doing so he uncovers an incredible story of guilt, forgiveness, obsession and violence.



A powerful look at the past, present and future of one of the world's most dangerous sports, Dog Rounds is a modern classic.
