A 2015 one hour long ITV documentary charting the early life and rise of British heavyweight boxing prospect Anthony Joshua, covering his delinquent early years when he once had to wear a tag and was convicted of drug possession, his amateur career, his gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics, all the way up to his 6th professional fight. It was preceded by the one hour long Sky Sports 1 documentary from 2014 Anthony Joshua: Heavyweight Hopes.

The film features contributions from a variety of people including his mother, his promoter Eddie Hearn, his trainer, and of course Anthony Joshua himself. Fast forward a year from this documentary and Joshua has since continued his progress and is set for a World title fight in 2016 (see the 2016 documentary Anthony Joshua: A Legend in the Making which covers his preparations for this IBF heavyweight title fight against American Charles Martin).
