Synopsis:

Drama series about a former boxing champion hoping to return to the top. On the way he has to face a number of obstacles, including a boxing promotor who refuses to give him a chance. Former boxing hero Poen Botha is helped by his trainer, former ballroom dancing champion Boela van der Merwe. When promotor Costa won’t present Poen with opponents, it seems to bring an end to Poen and Boela’s boxing dream. But then Boela inherits a large sum of money and the tide starts to turn. The money doesn’t come without strings attached, however: the inheritance terms state that Boela’s finances must now be overseen by his brother-in-law Smittie, who is a constant fly in Boela’s ointment. There are two women in Poena’s life: nightclub singer Dirkie, whose talent doesn’t quite match her ambition and who brings a lot of baggage to the relationship, including ex-husband Pieta Jacobs and nightclub owner J.C.; and the much more solid and supportive Iens. Other characters are Boela’s girlfriend Pops, his former ballroom dancing partner who is now constantly trying to get him down the aisle; Trish Perreira, who frequents the underworld on Costa’s arm; gangster Lucky Chaine and his bodyguard Watch; and Smittie’s nursing sister Donna.
