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.

The gamblers hands fly up with cash ready to place their

wagers as the fighters peel their layers of clothing off.

Jack scans the crowd until he spots Destine. Jack nods at

her. She nods back. Kieran doesn’t like it.

Bad Jack smiles. He is the cock of the walk and knows it.

Jack crosses the ring to Hammond.


Care to make a wager, Englishman?

Bet you three hundred I win.


Piss off, Jack.


Think I’m gonna win as well, do ya?

You English are soft as bread.

Bad Jack backs up to his corner loosening up. The referee, a

white bearded old timer with leather skin, steps in and draws

a chalk line in the center of the ring.


This is the Champion of America

facing the Champion of England so

let’s get the rules straight. When

both fighter’s have their foot on

the line, the round begins. When a

fighter goes down the round ends

until both fighters again toe the

line. No hitting a downed opponent.

No head butts. And Jack, no

punching the balls for fuck sake.

Now toe the scratch!

Bad Jack’s playful manner quickly transitions to focused rage

as he puts his foot on the chalk line. Vincent follows and


Hammond throws first, but Jack bobs and weaves away from the

punches. Hammond chases Jack in circles unable to connect.


I knew you were slow, but come on.

Jack plays it up to the crowd, but finally stops and sticks

his stubbly chin in the air.



Hit me you slow mangy sodomite!

BAM! Hammond whacks him good with a right cross, then gets in

close to land body shots.

Jack throws Hammond over his leg to the ground ending the

first round. Hammond quickly rises and puts his foot on the

scratch ready to start the second.

Bad Jack licks the blood from his lip. Like a morning shot of

whiskey to the alcoholic, the blood gives Jack his FIX.
