Doug has inherited a crumbling debt-ridden boxing gym.
GLOVES OFF follows Doug (Brad Moore) who, after the sudden death of his trainer during his championship fight, has inherited a crumbling debt-ridden gym, packed with a mixed bag of crazy would-be boxers (Ricky Tomlinson, Paul Barber, Alexei Sayle).
He must raise £50,000 fast or risk watching his mentor’s legacy re-possessed and transformed into a jumped-up Pilates parlour for stock brokers. Doug agrees to train a gypsy woman’s (Denise Van Outen) brother to fight in a £100,000 winner-takes-all bare-knuckle contest against the ‘King of The Gypsies’.

Director, Steve Nesbit – “We were so fortunate to have such a warm ensemble of cast. We wanted to create an atmosphere of belonging among a rich and unlikely diversity of characters and they afforded us that. That sense of community, friendship, action and humour has come together and given a film that is just fun to watch and watch again.”
Lead Actor & Co-Writer, Brad Moore - “GLOVES OFF is a piece of entertainment but it also represents to me what people can achieve when they pull together and pride kicks in.”
