Fighting

Synopsis: Shawn MacArthur, the kind-hearted son of an Alabama wrestling coach, makes a grim living selling fake products on the streets in New York. After dealing with thieving punks, he's discovered by bare-knuckle/street-fight manager, Harvey Boarden. He soon proves himself worthy and starts earning a small fortune, part of which he volunteers to spend on single mother Zulay Velez. Shawn doesn't cheat and that seems to be a major problem, notably after the arrival of his Alabama high-school rival.

Hey! What are

Thank you.

Hey!

Hey, you're holding people up here!

How you doing today?

Not so good.

turnstile, please.

Yo, we got it! Piano Man, Piano

Man. Billy Joel. Uptown Girl.

Hello, beautiful. Anybody selling

tickets to Piano Man? Box seats.

Move all this sh*t, man.

Move all this sh*t.

Excuse me, can I have

Pay your fare!

Hey, Mr. Sou.

How you doing, Mr. Sou?

Good? You know that

Radio Music Hall up there?

Man, I'll tell you, they

tried to kill me up there, man.

I bought some stuff

from downtown.

It was a fake book. I don't

even know how you do a fake book.

I'm gonna get some umbrellas

from you, is that okay?

Can I get some umbrellas from you? Yeah?

You said $100

last time, right?

I got in a fight, lost all my

money. This is all I got left.

Is that okay?

That's $100 right there. I

got one $20 left, all right?

Man, I had my stuff at

Radio City Music Hall.

I ain't gonna go down

there no more, though.

They're a bunch of crooks down

there. I'll see you later, Mr. Sou.

It's that kid from before,

Harvey. He's coming in here.

Can I help you?

Come on, look, I want

my money back, okay?

What money are you

talking about?

You know what I'm talking

about. Look, I don't mean no...

Come on.

He took it.

No, he did not... Okay,

I want it back right now.

He took your money? Okay.

Same shirt and everything.

This is Z and

as you can tell,

he's a little retarded

sometimes, okay?

Harvey.

Look, listen.

How much are we talking about

here? Don't give him sh*t.

No, no, listen. I've

got this. How much...

Hey, that's not nice.

That's not nice.

Here, thank you very much.

I should call the police on

you, you know? You should.

That's exactly what you should do.

I'll wait here for you if you want.

You know, you shouldn't be

robbing people, you know that?

And especially ones that

can come and find you.

Why don't you sit down and

talk to me for a second?

I just want to have

a conversation with you.

I was talking

about you earlier.

Look, try some of these bread

things, they're terrible.

You're going to

go after this kid?

Hey, wait up a second.

Where you going?

You know, that was some show

you put on out there today.

In the streets, you

know, the fisticuff thing.

Can I ask you one

question, though?

I'd much rather you

just stop following me.

I'm not following you, I'm

walking down the street.

But look, if you

want to make money...

You know...

Sorry, buddy.

There ain't

no friends here.

Think sitting behind a desk,

sucking ass all day, is making money.

Look, I'm Harvey Boarden,

all right?

Let me introduce myself,

I'm Harvey Boarden.

Shawn MacArthur.

Good to meet you.

You like to fight?

If I have to.

I can make you $5,000.

Got you interested, huh?

You see that store

right there?

You ever wonder how little

places like that stay in business?

BMW parked in front of it.

People dressed nicely.

They like people

that like to fight.

You want to make

some money at it?

Huh?

Yes or no?

You don't want to make no

money, you don't have to go.

You can go on

with your life.

I can make $5,000 with

you on one fight alone.

You can stay there

and go home if you like

or you can come

and get $5,000.

Wait, hey.

You ain't got no place to

go, go where you're going.

You better give me $5,000

if I walk across the street.

Come on, break out

one of them umbrellas.

It ain't raining.

You're right.

You know these guys, you

ever seen these guys before?

I'm like an agent for them,

I get them talent and stuff.
