Jonathan Mercer is a normal everyday guy with problems, but none greater than the day his wife Rain was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He turns to his lifelong friend and fight promoter, Grant for an answer, but it turns out to be more than he bargained for. Thrust into a world of underground street fighting, Jon must risk his life to raise money, save his love. Jon's sister, FBI agent Robyn Mercer is investigating the head of the fight league, King. Together with his enforcer Abel, they are responsible for the murders of countless fighters. After a brutal defeat, Jon is trained by Soleem and returns to the underground circuit to win it all - but at what cost? Written by R.L. Scott

Mega cheap fight film that can't escape it's budgetary limitations
15 October 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

An ex-con's wife is diagnosed with cancer but her treatment will cost $30,000. He has to resort to the world of underworld street fighting in order to have a chance of making the money necessary to help his wife.

Champion Road is a real bargain basement movie. Its production values are rock bottom, with limited sets and a small cast of amateur actors. The storyline is very hackneyed and includes various clichés associated with this type of film – a man fighting for his family, an evil gangster fight promoter, an enigmatic trainer, a psychotic fighter who must be defeated, etc. It's a fight film but, bizarrely, all of the fights seem to happen when no one else is watching, yet it is said many people are betting on the outcome of them – go figure! Generally speaking, this not a good film in any way really. But somehow it's not a complete disaster either. It entertains to at least some extent. Given the ultra-low budget, I have to cut it at least some slack and say that it is an earnest enough effort. And given the serious lack of resources at its disposal it was less bad than several others I have seen with such minuscule budgets. Still, it would be impossible to describe this as a good film despite the honest endeavour behind it.
