'Chasing The Dream' will follow the fortunes of Joshua Buatsi, Lawrence Okolie, and Anthony Fowler as they target title glory as professional boxers.

The Team GB trio have made the switch to the paid ranks after competing at last summer's Rio Olympic Games and the four-part series will bring you rare insight into the fighters, inside and outside the ring.

Buatsi carries big expectations on his young shoulders after returning from Brazil with a bronze medal and the light-heavyweight has sought advice from Lennox Lewis, one of Britain's boxing heroes.

A former fast food worker, Okolie has already dramatically changed his physique, and the heavy-handed Hackney man wants to blast his way up the cruiserweight rankings.

Fowler has linked up with trainer Dave Coldwell, who oversees the successful career of fellow Merseysider Tony Bellew, and is desperate to bring more major titles back to his home city.
