Plot Summary
Great Britain's biggest boxer, Pete Wright (Tamer Hassan), is preparing for the middleweight world championship fight against José Mendez (Michael Peña) when he spars with milkman and part-time boxer Jimmy Connelly (Orlando Bloom) and promptly breaks his hand. Wright's manager, Herbie Bush (Omid Djalili), still needs someone to represent Britain in the championship, however, so he turns the gloves over to the woefully underprepared Connelly in the hopes that his fluke victory can repeat itself.
