Storyline

Michael Dublin is a full-time con man working the underground boxing circuit. A lonely drifter on the run from a past best forgotten, he moves from one scam to another, leaving a trail of enemies in his wake. Dublin invents his best scam yet when he meets Katherine Paker, a female fighter with the skills to take down a man twice her size. In a scheme Dublin calls "fight-rigging, in reverse", the two hit the road working fights in seedy basement bars, abandoned warehouses, and backwoods county fairs. But Dublin's shady past catches up with them and suddenly the stakes are higher - and more dangerous - than they'd ever imagined. Written by anonymous

an awful 10 cent version of "HARD TIMES."
27 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whoever is posting these positive reviews must be involved with the production. I couldn't take more than 34 minutes of this mediocre underground fight film. The premise seemed interesting on the box & I could suspend my disbelief of a small female fighter winning against bigger guys due to the rules they set up in the film. But boring actors, sub-par TV-style docu directing and truly awful dialog made me stop the film. I'll give any indie film a chance without a budget because you have to put thought into the script and talent behind the camera. They have to be smart but FIGHT NIGHT is regurgitated hack material.

The moment that made me turn it off was when they were escaping from Speedy who is trying to shoot them. He's standing 5 feet away from the car and he shoots the hood. NOT THE WINDSHIELD, THE HOOD. Something small yes but indicative of the film as a whole - no thinking at all. Christ! And that was the directing. The scriptwriting is worse! I agree that the only good think about it is the actress but the film didn't interest me to stick around longer than 34 minutes.

I implore anyone interested in this type of film to see the incredible "HARD TIMES" with Charles Bronson as the underground fighter and James Coburn as the sleazy promoter. Set in depression era New Orleans, it's a lot of fun. The scene with Speedy is almost stolen directly from that film except Bronson takes the gun away from them.
