Seconds Out Films presents a moving story of a boy called Champ, a boxer named James and their battle with cerebral palsy
Many people in the boxing community are aware of who Champ Yearsley is but do not know his full story. Often seen on social media with the likes of Anthony Yarde and James Branch in the renowned Peacock Gym, Champ suffers from quadriplegic cerebral palsy but refuses to let the condition define or defeat him.
We decided to make a short film to document Champ’s progress through boxing and his relationship with Branch, and we hope you find it moving, inspirational or both. You can also help Champ achieve his dream of attending a live Wrestlemania, if you are feeling sufficiently generous.
So here is Jamie & The Champ.
