The documentary film by Virgil Films, “Ring of Faith,” powerfully portrays the link between the sport of boxing and the practice of religion.

Released July 23 on Digital HD and DVD, the film is produced by Craig Tubiolo, programming and production director at DeSales Media, and host of NET TV’s “Walk in Faith.” Tubiolo was nominated for an Emmy Award for “Ring of Faith” in the Sports Documentary Category in May. The film was also recognized at the Catholic Press Association Conference last month.

The film features actor Mario Lopez, former professional boxer Paulie Malignaggi, two-time welterweight world champion boxer Shawn Porter, Vatican officials and Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza, among others.

“The world will have the chance to see an impactful movie connecting the power of God with the strength of boxing professionals,” Tubliolo said. “This film showcases boxers who have been gifted by God, and have used their talent to steer others to a successful path.

“Ten years ago, I had the vision to produce a film that’s centered around what happens inside of a boxing ring, from the viewpoint of it being life’s stage,” he explained. “At the moment a boxer steps into the ring, they only see red and black colors in the corners. Everything else is left ringside. With the release of this film, it is my hope that this message will reach across religion and culture.”
