Jelena Mrdjenovich is an 8-time world champion boxer, and currently holds WBC and WBA World Titles in the Featherweight division. As the most decorated female boxer of all time, Jelena Mrdjenovich has risen to the top of the pro fighting ranks. As she approaches 50 fights in her career, she will have a difficult test facing undefeated French boxer Gaelle Amand, with both her WBC and WBA belts on the line. While Jelena is an elite athlete at the very top of her sport, not many people know who she is, even in her hometown. Through this documentary, we want to give the viewer insight into Jelena’s life and training, and what it takes to make it to the very top.
