On the Ropes Independent Film Pitch

Our film, "On The Ropes," is considered one of the greatest sports stories, ever told!!! The film "On The Ropes," is the true-life story about, arguably, the greatest sports comeback of all-time. Craig "Gator" Bodzianowski was an up and coming cruiserweight boxer in the early "80's," on his way to becoming a contender when he had a horrific motorcycle accident which resulted in the amputation of his lower right leg. Against all the odds, "Gator" defied all of the critics and naysayers to become what some say the toughest man who ever stepped into the ring. Not the best fighter but the toughest. Gator goes on to win the Illinois Heavyweight Championship, the Intercontinental America's Cruiserweight Championship and eventually wins the right to fight for WBA World Championship belt. The film culminates with a fight that people would think was fiction if it weren't all true.

"On The Ropes is the most promising script we've seen this year. It has an inherently interesting setting, topic and main character. At its best, the story is stirring, gripping and funny. Your dialogue is above average and sometimes shines, particularly during comedic banter..." The Script Gauntlet (Professional Script analyzers)

There is a book on Gator too, “Tale of the Gator: The Craig Bodzianowski Story,” which we have the rights to.

Here’s my website address; check out my video on Gator “Still Standing” which is on the “On The Ropes” page:http://windycityimages.com/index.php
