Fight Club is a new three part series from BBC Northern Ireland which follows a group of individuals from the Northern Ireland business community as they take part in Belfast’s first ever white collar boxing tournament - proving that the thrill of business is no match for the thrill of the fight.
With no previous boxing experience they have signed up for 11 weeks of intensive training before taking to the ring at the Europa Hotel for a fight against a fellow rookie. The series follows their progress as they swap the daily grind of the office for the blood, sweat and tears of the boxing ring.
Former Irish Olympian and boxing trainer, Cathal O'Grady, has tapped into the psyche of the high flying professionals to offer them the unique experience of becoming a boxer. It is his job to turn a group of doctors, solicitors, civil servants and company directors into athletes capable of going toe-to-toe against each other in the raw atmosphere of fight night.
