Delving deep into his personal life
Jacob Smith is born and bred in Birkenhead, Merseyside, and opens up about his past experiences growing up in the area.
The ‘North End’ of Birkenhead is known for being a rough place to live and the UK Muay Thai star tells us his story of growing up in the area.
Starting a family and how he turned his life around through Muay Thai
Like many young teenagers growing up in an area like Birkenhead, Jacob mixed with crowds involved in drugs and other criminal activity, but it was when he met his partner and began a family, he focused his attention on Muay Thai as a way to turn his life around.
Taking his training to levels not many others would go
Known for his high-intensity and outright sickening training regime, the documentary gives viewers an insight into his determination to win and become the best through sheer grit and hard work every single day.
His path to becoming UK #1 and being signed by ONE Championship
From fighting on Tanko Muay Thai League and getting noticed by YOKKAO promoter Brian Calder, to taking the UK #1 spot against Reece Thomson and getting the call from ONE Championship, Jacob explains the story of the path that led him to where he is now.
