Once a celebrity and Olympic champion in his homeland of Bosnia, 42 year old Nermin Sabanovic thinks he still has what it takes to fight for a world boxing title. While he may have the support of the Boasnian community and his friends at the Aboriginal Sobriety Group where he works, his wife and two daughters aren’t so sure. Nermin has been out of the ring for ten years, and his ageing body might not be able to keep up to it.
