“If ever there were a Web series showcasing what it takes to fight the odds and reach your goals, this is it." – Gizmodo


White Collar Brawler is a documentary web series that follows two lifelong friends who decide to leave the office life behind and train to become amateur boxers — and fight each other in the ring. It’s “JustinTV” meets “Fight Club” — a story about a couple of suits looking for a life of substance. Episodes are released in real-time on Tuesdays and Fridays as the brawlers gear up for the fight of their lives.

  • WCB is current. We shoot, edit, and release within a few days, so all of the episodes are fresh out the oven. After all, instant gratification is the currency of the internet. New episodes are released every Tuesday and Friday. Watch episode #1 now.
  • WCB is local. We're not trying to hate on Chicago or Tampa, but no one does it quite like the San Francisco Bay Area. That's why nearly every element of the show — from the shooting locations to the bands in the soundtrack to our sponsors — have their roots in or around SF. Live in the Bay Area? Train with the brawlers in person.
  • WCB is for real. Everything Kai and Nate are going through to prepare for their fight - the training, the drastic weight loss, the blood/sweat/tears — is as real as a stomach punch. Meet the brawlers and hear their story.
