Security guard Jack Welson (26), a Brazilian champion aiming at a South American title, is a role model to the young boxers at Garrido's gym. Garrido's boxing gym is located under a viaduct in a quarter with one of the highest rates of homelessness in the city. The fighters are people who survive in difficult conditions, often without having a place to live, but believing that boxing is a way towards a more dignified life.
