Series 1 Diamonds in the Ring


Can boxing help domestic abuse survivors regain their self respect? Daniella Smith, a former world champion boxer, believes so. She runs Diamonds in the Ring, a boxing gym for women. And, many of the women who train there are former clients of women’s refuges.

Shonie is one of them. She survived horrific abuse at the hands of her former partner, who was jailed for his abuse. We follow her as she trains to fight in one of Diamonds in the Ring’s charity boxing matches. It’s the second time she’s doing it.
