Never Give Up: The Boxing Survival Story Of Jacobs, Dirrell

"Never Give Up: A Boxing Survival Story" is a compelling half-hour original Spike documentary featuring two of boxing's true inspiring warriors - Daniel Jacobs and Anthony Dirrell.

Heart is something that every fighter must have to win, to thrive, to survive. This documentary focuses on the heart and grit displayed by two fighters as they overcome their most deadly opponent yet, cancer.

Daniel Jacobs and Anthony Dirrell refused to go down without a fight, and both made miraculous recoveries en route to becoming two of the best in their respective divisions.

"Never Give Up" recounts the parallel and amazing paths Dirrell and Jacobs have taken. From being teammates during amateurs and their early professional success; to their scary diagnosis and inspiring recovery; all the way until 2014 when they respectively won their first championships one week apart.

Enclosed is the entire half-hour program for you to embed. We are offering this to you prior to premiere on Spike on Friday, April 17 at 11:30pm ET/PT.

On Friday, April 24 LIVE on Spike at 9:00pm ET/PT, for the first time, these two champions and survivors defend their titles on the same card when Jacobs fights Caleb Truax and Dirrell will take on Floyd Mayweather protégée Badou Jack.
