On 28 October 2017 a boxing match between Chinese boxer Fanlong Meng, and Ghanaian boxer Emmanuel Omari Danso, took place in Macau, People's Republic of China. The Chinese boxer won and was awarded the title by unanimous decision of the judges. Fate determined that Emmanuel Danso would dispute in Macau fight. It was this fate that put him at the center of this narrative. The project called "Blood, Sweat & Tears" consists in 2 parts: the first is composed of combat depictions; the second group consists of Emmanuel Danso's drills, his dream companions and the places where they happen.
