Movie Info

A once-promising boxer with a shady past finds that his second shot at glory may come with a hefty price-tag in director Lawrence Page's unforgiving boxing drama. It's been ten long years since recently released ex-con Shadow (Bokeem Woodbine) has tasted freedom, and life on the outside just isn't easy to adjust to after doing hard time. Though his loving wife Sharon (Deborah Cox) is willing to take him back, Shadow can't help feeling the ghost of his past weighing heavy on his weary soul. Though the lure of the lucrative underground street fighting circuit proves impossible to resist for a fighter looking to reclaim his former glory, the ruthless moneymen who run the business from behind the scenes are willing to go to great lengths to ensure that their secret doesn't get out. When Shadow attempts to break free of his underworld binds and the powers that be make clear that his family will pay the price for his actions, the natural born fighter finds that he must choose his battles carefully to ensure both the survival of himself and his family.

Audience Reviews for Blood of a Champion

Well, Blood of a Champion definitely isn't one of Bokeem's better movies. But I will say that Jason's Lyric and Strapped are the only 2 reasons I watched this film. He did such a good job in those 2 movies that I wanted to see him in more flicks. This one however, must have been just a payday for him. Even though the movie and the script were really bad, I was still entertained. The fight scenes were so comical. If there had been more fight scenes, this movie would have been so much better because the fight scenes were hilarious. If you do see this movie, see it for the fight scenes... they were very entertaining!
