A Documentary about Olympic silver medal winner John Joe Nevin will air on Network 2 next Wednesday night.

The documentary was intended to cover one of Ireland’s greatest amateur’s move into the pro ranks, but ended up encompassing a lot more.

The crew filmed The Mullingar shufflers first pro win and were there as he recovered after both his legs were broke in an assault.

Filmed over 12 months the documentary covers Nevin’s comeback against the odds to fight in Dublin last November.
