Jelena Mrdjenovich is an 8-time world champion boxer, and currently holds WBC and WBA World Titles in the Featherweight division. Among the most decorated female boxers of all time, and Canada’s most successful international fighter, 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 in Cergy, France, 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.
