Directed by Jonas Quastel and starring Gary Daniels and Peter Weller, Born to Fight is an action-melodrama that relates the tale of a former fighter who's decided to walk away from the ring and try to lead a "normal" existence, settling down with his family and running an auto-body shop.
Shane Slavin (Daniels) has achieved essentially all that he aimed for as an underground fighter, developing a reputation for toughness throughout the shadowy world he once ruled. When his younger brother, who is also a fighter, runs afoul of a crime lord (Weller) by refusing to throw a match, Slavin is compelled to re-enter the ring in order to recoup his brother's losses and restore the family honor.
Although he manages to win his initial fights, he discovers that he's lost his "edge" and competing is becoming more and more difficult. The fear he's going to be matched up with an opponent that is seeking to earn a reputation as Slavin's conqueror arises, but he continues to climb into the ring, counting on his skills to pull him through.
