Storyline

The story of Howard Winstone is a compelling one. Howard became Featherweight Champion of the World at the age of 29 in 1968. What makes Howard's story quite remarkable is that as a young man he lost the tips of three fingers in an industrial accident of his home town of Merthyr Tydfil. The accident was so severe that he was unable to make a fist with his right hand, a devastating blow for anyone, but a blow made all the worse for one who's entire career demands the use of both hands. Howard was known for his right handed power back in his early day's so the day of the fateful accident was essentially the day Howard's boxing career came to an end. Well that's what everyone assumed accept Howard, who completely changed the way he boxed and went on remarkably to become Champion of Britain, Champion of Europe and Champion of the world! The story of Howard Winstone's boxing career alone is a remarkable one, but there was far more to Howard than just his boxing career, in Howard there was ... Written by Anonymous

Fantastic Film, dramatic with great photography and heartfelt storyline
16 February 2011 | by rhian_arwelSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this film, high praise to the young Director. I thought the script was fantastic and it had a strong heartfelt storyline. It was great to see a boxing film that appealed to a much wider audience. Acting is second to none. Nice to see a mix of more established actors with some fresh young talent, i thought the casting was very well thought out. It was a blessing to know that the story of Howard Winstone had been researched so well and involved many of his friends and family. It was a very interesting storyline which wasn't ruined by being wrapped up in cotton wool. Strong photography throughout. Would recommend! :o)
