Ben ‘Gadget’ Alvarez


Ben Alvarez emigrated from Chile to Edmonton at age 14. Coming from a childhood of poverty, uncertainty and a ‘survival of the fittest’ mentality, Ben not only has the heart to survive in the ring, but the athletic ability and natural talent as well. With goals to make the Canadian Olypmpic team in 2016 and become a professional boxer, Ben struggles with his decision to go against his parents wishes and pursue boxing as a career.
