Howard Winstone 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. This multi award winning film will keep you riveted to your seat.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All trousers, no mouth."
‑ Ed Andrews, Little White Lies
"KO -ed by a flabby screenplay and lacking the money to do justice to the '60s setting, director Neil Jones falls back on clever tricks - like using an HD Glove Cam - but fails to punch above his weight."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"Unfortunately the film doesn't quite get to grips with it on anything other than a superficial level, seemingly too charmed by the polite, respectful lead character to get down and dirty with any bigger issues, so punches are pulled in the drama."
‑ Phelim O'Neill, Guardian
"Stodgy fare that eulogises the man rather than delving deeply into his compelling life."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"The re-creation of the 1960s backdrop on a tight budget sadly never allows the director to unleash the epic sweep this against-the-odds yarn really requires."
‑ Jamie Russell, Radio Times
