Synopsis

BARE KNUCKLE is the true story of bare-knuckle fighter Lenny McLean (Josh Helman - Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, Jack Reacher), who rose from 1970s East End London to become the most feared street fighter of all time - an intimate portrait of a man who managed crippling Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder with extreme violence. BARE KNUCKLE chronicles origin as a young street fighter in 1970s East End London, the haunting effects of McLean’s horrific childhood abuse, and his bitter rivalry with Roy Shaw across three unlicensed boxing matches, culminating in Lenny taking the championship title of “The Guv’nor”.
