Boxing is a brutal sport so why do many fighters turn to religion as they engage in such violence? A new documentary aims to find out.
Craig Tubiolo spent three years working on “Ring of Faith.” He’s the Director of Programming and Production at DeSales Media Group, the communications arm of the Brooklyn, New York Catholic Diocese.
Tubiolo interviewed more than two dozen people from the boxing world and from different religions.
“We were fortunate we just got about every world champion boxer from a Catholic world champion boxer to a Christian world champion boxer, a Jewish world champion to the Muslim world champion and they all had the same sort of point of view.” Tubiolo said. “They all felt like this is a calling from God that God gave them this gift,”
“Ring of Faith” will be available on streaming platforms in July.
