His is a world of drugs, violence, and poverty. He loses his mother early in his life, and at the age of fifteen he watches helplessly as his father dies from an overdose. Throughout the years, he witnesses the devastating effect of drugs on friends and their families, and the high cost of addiction. Despite the many hurdles and hardships in his life, Jones has three things in his corner: the love of God, the love of his grandmother, and the love of a good woman. With a determination that comes from deep within-and Joe, his good-hearted trainer-he vows to finish high school and reach his ultimate goal: to become the heavyweight champion of the world.
