Following his boxing trainer’s sudden death during his championship fight, Doug has inherited a crumbling debt-ridden gym, packed full of a mixed bag of crazy would-be pugilists.
After a chance meeting with a gypsy woman, Doug reluctantly agrees to train her bumbling man giant brother to fight in a bare-knuckle contest against the undefeated and equally monstrous ‘King of the Gypsies’. With a £100,000 winner-takes-all purse, Doug and his crew of lovable underdogs head north on a hilarious road trip to the Appleby Horse Fair. With everything at stake, the gang faces an army of Irish travellers as the scene is set for a final Big Top showdown.
Gloves Off is a feel-good, high jinks British comedy about a group of friends risking life and limb to save their beloved boxing gym.
