Series 10: A Fighting Chance

Behind the battered red doors of a gym in East London, towering heavyweights spar in the ring, exchanging thumping lefts and rights as their corner men shout out instructions. Tucked away to the side of the sweat stained canvas, a heavy punching bag shifts from side to side with the impact of each punch. But this fighter, is not a monstrous heavyweight, but a petite 12 year old girl in a hijab flanked by her doting dad.
