Raymond 'Fight' Beck

Play Video

Synopsis / English

Four roped sides. Three-minute rounds. Two men fighting – one winner. Raymond Beck would do anything for his family; or what’s left of it anyway. He returns to the ring in search of cash and glory. But his real aim? To challenge Dyson “Tosa Inu” Cumbo for the ultimate Maltese Middleweight Championship. While training for the big fight in the confines of the ring, Raymond realises that there are other battles that exist beyond it and its four roped sides. Hooks and jabs can come from anywhere, better stay alert! Raymond must beat the count or prepare to throw in the towel. Written by talented young writer André Mangion, Raymond “Fight” Beck is a straight punch tale of what one is ready to give up; for those he loves – and for the sweet science that crowns him Champion.
