When they are evicted from their home, struggling Bronx auto mechanic Jaden Miller will do everything in his power to save he and his mother from living on the streets. With the help of legendary trainer, Duane Taylor (Michael Clarke Duncan), Miller soon finds that boxing is their ticket to a better life. Earning the title “Bronx Boy” Miller becomes a local hero. After winning a big fight, a cable network takes notice and decides to give Miller his own TV show, “The Challenger”, which will follow him all the way to the light-heavyweight title.
