    Finished this, wasn't too bad, not as good as the other boxing series they had though IMO. The one thing they never really brought up was the mom of Shek Tsz-Chung, only that she locked him up in the dark, doesn't really explain who she was or what not, which I felt was kind of odd. Did you watch this ralphrepo since it had to do with workout and what not...

    I did watch the first few episodes and then sort of got distracted. I did DL them for later viewing. When I have time, I'll try to catch up with them. Been busy as all git lately...
