The journeyman boxer: Fighting on the losing side

12 June 2015 Last updated at 00:37 BST

Whilst the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight it out in the glare of the world’s media, at the other end of the spectrum fighters like Kristian Laight are in the ring week in, week out without recognition.

With more than 200 fights to his name, but only a handful of wins, 34-year-old Laight is a journeyman – a professional fighter who boxes regularly, gets in the ring with the up and coming, but will never be a contender.
