Fightworld (Netflix) – Premieres 12th October
A boxing documentary where actor Frank Grillo heads off around the world to talk to fighters and trainers of various fighting styles. Where he takes part in some of the training, learning the techniques and also finds out about how the styles came about.
In each episode Grillo looks into one specific fighting style, and heads over to a country that has a unique take on the sport. While there, Grillo talks to a couple of the fighters where they chat about their career and how the style they use comes from the ideologies of the area. Grillo also chats to some of the famed trainers who take him through his paces to show the differences in techniques compared to the staples that he was taught.
For a documentary about fighting it covers the bases you’d expect. Though the interviews in it aren’t as insightful as you’d hope, meaning while there’s nothing wrong with the show it doesn’t really grab your interest fully.
