John Noble as Eddie Thomas


Howard Winstone lost three fingers on his right hand at 16, meaning his impressive amateur boxing career would come to end.

But through sheer determination, despite only being able to make a fist with one hand, he went on to defy the world and challenge for every boxing title in his division and eventually the world title.

Set in 1960's Britain, this true story is inspirational, powerful and full of drama.

For as Howard reaches the height of his success, his marriage suffers and his wife struggles with the pressures of his fame.

The film moves between these two dynamic story lines, from potential to injury, from injury to domestic failure and career success.
