Official Trailer for Bare-Knuckle Fighting Documentary 'Knuckle' Hits
"We will fight because we are men!" Are you ready for this?! Yahoo (via SlashFilm) recently debuted the official trailer for a documentary called Knuckle, directed by Ian Palmer, about an epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of Irish Traveler bare-knuckle fighting. This could honestly be described as the real-life, brutal, bloody version of Snatch, which they even play up somewhat in this trailer. Its been receiving some solid praise already, so give it a shot, as long as you can handle violence. This is also the film, and the guy, that Tim League is fighting at Fantastic Fest later this week in a live boxing match - he's crazy!
Watch the official trailer for Ian Palmer's documentary Knuckle, debuted on Yahoo:
Knuckle is an epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of Irish Traveler bare-knuckle fighting. The film gives a rare inside look at the generations-long feud between Irish Traveller clans headed by James Quinn McDonagh and Paddy "The Lurcher" Joyce. Twelve Years. Three Clans. One War.
Knuckle is directed by first-time filmmaker Ian Palmer. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and is also playing at Fantastic Fest in Austin this month. The film will be getting a limited release starting December 2nd from ARC Entertainment, though I think it might be available on VOD now. For more info, visit the official website or Facebook page. And check it out if you're going to Fantastic Fest, too!

Travelers in Ireland have a reputation for being dirty, inbred and violent. Glad to see there's a documentary out there to put people straight on the matter

It turned out that the sweet-talking, tattoo-sporting pikey was a gypsy bare-knuckle boxing champion. Which makes him harder than a coffin nail.

Fuckin pikey scum no one likes ya cos you thieve rob con and stitch then bleat on about how unfair people are towards you. Stop leaving your rubbish excrement and builders waste at your sites when you leave and it may go a small way to endear yourselves. You get good and bad in every group it's a shame 90 percent or travellers are scum ten percent good usually it's the other way round with the few ruining others good reputation. Unfortunately the majority of gypsies are pure filth. Quite right their the most despised people in the uk if not the world. Oh and I'll fight you if you disagree lol.
