Showtimes’ Prison Fighters Trailer (Documentary)
Even though we made jokes about this on our podcast for death row inmates, it seems Showtime probably listens to the show and came out with a documentary called Prison Fighters.
In Thailand, you’re able to go through a rehabilitation program where you can train to fight for a possible early release. This sounds like a movie we’ve seen before. But it’s not a movie, it’s real true life.
PRISON FIGHTERS: 5 Rounds To Freedom uncovers a shocking practice of liberation in the criminal justice system of Thailand. The SHOWTIME Sports original production examines a fully sanctioned and accredited rehabilitation program called Prison Fight through which convicted criminals can train and compete in fights that lead to early release. Premieres on Friday, Feb. 24 at 8:30PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME.
If you were in prison and had the opportunity to fight your way out, would you? Let us know in the comments!
