Filmmaker Ciaran Gibbons will host a screening of his award winning documentary ‘The Fight Game’ in Cardiff on Friday June 27th. The event will be held at The Master Gunners pub in Gabalfa which is owned by former professional boxer and promoter, Kevin Hayde. The evening includes a table buffet and Q&A session with boxers who feature in the documentary. Gibbons, a regular contributor to BoxingWales, has seen his documentary win Best Feature Film of the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival in May and Viewer’s Choice at the Cardiff Film Festival earlier this month. The fly on the wall film gives an insight in to the professional debut of 19-year-old Aled Cook, giving the full background of his amateur career and the build up to his first paid outing – a successful points decision win over Kieron Gray at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena last August. Cook began boxing at Gwynfi ABC and he would go on to win four British and five Welsh titles while amassing a record of 45 wins from 50 bouts, Cook represented Wales internationally in 20 of those bouts. John Radmore had guided Cook since he first began boxing and the documentary begins as Radmore hands over the reigns to Team Clev with Nathan Cleverly managing and Vince Cleverly coaching. It was the Cleverly connection that provided the documentary with it’s key focus, August 17th – the date of Cook’s debut. The behind the scenes pre and post-fight footage reveals a remarkably relaxed Cook who possesses an ear-to-ear smile throughout the night. The documentary also includes interviews about ‘The Fight Game’ with notable British boxing figures, such as; Ricky Hatton, Chris Eubank and Steve Robinson. Tickets are just £7 and all proceeds will be donated to Cyril Thomas, secretary of the Welsh Ex-Boxer’s Association. To book your ticket, call: 02920 529521.
