Next month sees the release of Gloves Off, an award-winning British bare-knuckle boxing comedy starring Ricky Tomlinson, Denise Van Outen, Paul Barber, Alexei Sayle and Brad Moore, and we’ve got an exclusive trailer for the film, which you can watch right here…
Gloves off follows Doug (Brad Moore) who, after the sudden death of his trainer during his championship fight, has inherited a crumbling debt-ridden gym, packed with a mixed bag of crazy would-be boxers (Ricky Tomlinson, Paul Barber, Alexei Sayle). He must raise £50,000 fast or risk watching his mentor’s legacy re-possessed and transformed into a jumped-up Pilates parlour for stock brokers. Doug agrees to train a gypsy woman’s (Denise Van Outen) brother to fight in a £100,000 winner-takes-all bare-knuckle contest against the ‘King of The Gypsies’.
Gloves Off will be available on demand from September 24th and will celebrate its UK premiere on September 19th at The Prince Charles Theatre in Leicester Square.
