Corner Kings is a fascinating boxing documentary exclusive to ITV.com about corner man, Patrick Fitzpatrick, and how he continues to inspire the lives of local fighters at his Swindon based boxing gym.

Fitzpatrick is best known for working with former Commonwealth and British Super-middleweight champion, George Groves, who pays his own fitting tribute to his trainer in the film.

Written, directed & produced by award-winning British filmmaker Mono Ghose with London production company Mavericks Storm Entertainment, the documentary is available to watch exclusively on our website, below.

Fitzpatrick and Groves are putting on an exciting fight card this Saturday 2nd May, in County Derry, Ireland, which features some of the rising star prospects shown in the film.

Eamonn ‘King' Kane faces unbeaten Lewis Taylor in defence of his IBF intercontinental middleweight crown. A win should secure Eamonn a top three ranking putting him in a great position to challenge for the World title in one of the hottest divisions both domestically and in America.

Big fights lie ahead, with the likes of Andy Lee, Chris Eubank Jr., Billy Joe Saunders and Spike O’Sullivan all mooted as possible future opponents.

Chief support sees team-mate Luke 'The Duke' Watkins fighting for the vacant Irish title at cruiserweight over 10 rounds, plus exciting welterweight Old School Garvey Kelly also on the undercard. Luke and Garvey both feature in the documentary, above.
