Movie Info

A feature debut for Emmy-winning TV director Lee Stanley, this film centers around the wheeling and dealing lifestyle of the world of boxing. Christian pop singer Carman stars as Orlando Leone, a former cruiserweight champ who now works as a security guard for a hotel and runs a youth center. One night on the job at the hotel, he assists in a complaint regarding noise and disruption, which happens to be occupied by the current cruiserweight champion. A local boxing promoter hears of the conflict and decides it is the perfect opportunity to get Orlando back into the ring. Through blackmail, Orlando is faced with returning to his old milieu, where he must face the current champion no matter what. Carman: The Champion, released by independent Christian company 8X Entertainment, also features Michael Nouri and Patricia Manterola.
