CounterP

From director Jay Bulger comes the Netflix original documentary feature, “Counterpunch,” which follows 3 promising amateur boxers as they pursue success in a sport that has experienced a steady decline in popularity.

Discipline, sweat, heartbreak and triumph are all on full display in Bulger’s look into the world of boxing. Despite the odds, these young boxers are determined to make a name for themselves alongside the sport’s most remembered and revered champions. The film provides audiences with an unflinching look at the pain and pride needed to achieve greatness.

Netflix premieres “Counterpunch” exclusively on June 16, 2017.
