Bare Knuckle script
Bare Knuckle (2016)
Synopsis: The Boxer, a quiet man with a history of losing fights, comes to Mickey McDonnell begging for a fight, but the only thing he can offer the failed pugilist is an impossible match with Bruiser, an unbeaten brute twice the boxer's size, and if he loses he owes Mickey twenty fights as payback.


Fine, but if I don’t go, the whole

thing’s off. No money. Nothing.




Alright. Let’s just hope Bad Jack

makes quick work of his man.


BAD JACK, bald head, thick mustache, a dirty rotten beast of

a man, sits with an American Flag draped over his shoulders.

GIDEON, Jack’s greasy-haired corner man, circles him.


No man can best you. No one has

your thirst for blood. All men fear

you. That English Nance is no match

for the beast he is to face today!

Bad Jack stands with a fury and bellows out a grunt that

could only come from a wild thing. Raw emotion and power exit

his lungs. Fireworks are coming.


Half knocked down stone building packed to the brim with a

boisterous fancy(crowd). A mix of pickpockets, gamblers,

beggars, and working class men escaping their daily grind.

They all huddle around a boxing stage eagerly waiting for the

fighters to arrive.

Near the back of the fancy, Kieran wraps his arm around

Destine, staring with disdain at the devious crowd.

Kieran sees a prime viewing spot on a stack of crates. He

pulls Destine to it. As they jump up a squirmy SOD takes the

spot and pulls a knife.


Fuck off.

Kieran backs away with Destine who looks on disappointed.


What would you have me do? Have it

out with the man right here?

The mob erupts as the fighters enter. Bad Jack stomps through

the crowd with his armed gang of BOWERY BOYS and tosses his

hat in the ring. The crowd cheers even louder.

Met with strong boos, his opponent VINCENT HAMMOND, the

strong jawed British champ, throws his hat in.


The crowd is pushed back by grisly men whose job is to keep

the mob from climbing in the ring, messing with the fighters.
