The trailer for ‘Prison Fighters’ shows real prisoners who fight for early release

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!
