Description: In the mean streets of East L.A., a dying mother relays a valuable lesson to her precious 9-year-old daughter, Isabelle; "We shouldn't have to give up the thing we love to be with the one we love.

Fifteen years later, Belle has a dream of her own: to continue the journey her father began and become a champion. Does this Knock-Out have what it takes to make it in the cold, cruel world of boxing - a world exceedingly dominated by men? In the tradition of Champion, Rocky, and Raging Bull, get ready for boxing's main event!
