The fascinating story of a boxer who fights to lose.

Meet Lewis Van Poetsch, the boxer who gets paid to lose

Underdogs is a short documentary following Lewis and his team as they hustle their way through Britain’s fight scene. His record stands at 134 fights, 9 wins and 125 losses. As an amateur Lewis enjoyed relative success, yet upon turning professional his grand ambitions were caught in the cogs of boxing’s unforgiving system. Now approaching his 150th fight, the film tells his story and asks how, despite his many defeats, Lewis has become one of Britain’s most sought-after fighters.
