Our brand new television show, VICE World of Sports, premieres on VICELAND on April 27 at 11 PM. We are very proud of this show and are excited to put it out into the world. So excited, in fact, that we're letting our beloved readers get a sneak peak at the first episode: Boys of Bukom.
Bukom is a town too small for a map. But somehow, this tiny, slum village on the coast of Ghana has produced more world champion boxers per capita than anywhere else in the world.
This is just one of the many stories we'll be telling this season. VICE World of Sports gets on the field and into the ring through a series of compelling stories at the fringe of culture and politics, across a range of places and people through the one lens that connects them all: sport.
