Las Vegas hosts some of the biggest boxing matches in the world. "Floyd Mayweather" and "Manny Pacquiao" are household names, and ringside tickets for their fights cost over $1000. But what does to take to "make it" as a fighter in this town? What's the life of an amateur or young pro struggling to win, often while juggling a family and job? We go behind-the-scenes with local boxers and MMA fighters who want to see their names in lights. Step into the ring with us and into a fighter's life.
