BORN INTO THIS is an upcoming documentary film directed by Sean Ryon and Lea Scruggs. It follows the American Dream through an immigrant father and his son's efforts to break into the world of professional boxing.
Junior "Sugar Boy" Younan is an 18-year-old Super Middleweight fighter from New York. His father Sherif has been his trainer throughout his entire career. After 14 years, Junior and Sherif are beginning to realize their aspirations: Junior has become a blue chip professional prospect backed by some of boxing's leading figures. But ahead of them lays their biggest challenge yet: surviving the business of boxing without sacrificing their familial bond.
