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

Moving story, dramatic scenes and beautifully shot.
17 February 2011 | by brotherstuSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film at the premiere in Cardiff and it was brilliant.

The life of Howard Winstone was a hard fought battle and the film portrays this perfectly. The cast deliver fantastic performances.

What makes a difference is that some of the people featured in the story actually appear in the film, working alongside young actors who are playing them. It makes it feel more personal having people who knew Howard taking part in the film.

I'm really looking forward to watching it again when the DVD comes out and everyone should try to see this if they get a chance!
