Laugh out-loud lines... a touching romance

The Independent on Gypsy Queen

The story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell, a bare knuckle fighter from a traveller family, hero to his people and self proclaimed Gypsy King. George enters the world of professional boxing which puts him on a collision course with his roots, his fears and his very identity.

In the opposite corner, Dane ‘The Pain’ Samson, the young pretender and son of a boxing legend, is fighting his own battles leading to a tragedy that neither man can predict.

A critically acclaimed love story about two men who find each other in the most unlikely of worlds.
