Boxing News: Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Thoughts and a New Film About a Deaf Boxer!!

I constantly wonder if the delay between a Mayweather/Pacquiao fight is actually good for the sport of boxing as a whole.    I know there are a lot of fans who will continue to watch boxing after these two finally decide to get it on.   I know those who feel that once Mayweather and Pacquiao leave the sport of boxing, UFC and MMA will finally transcend the sport. there are a multitude of  wonderful boxers out there, but no one generates numbers like Money Mayweather and the Pacman.  Let’s wait and see what happens to the sport. I truly think they should do one in Vegas..one in Manila..one in Africa. Bring back the hype of an Ali Frazier. make HISTORY.

Speaking of History, there is a new Boxing Film in development that NEEDS to get made, not because yours truly wrote/created it, but because we’re trying to raise awareness on a global level. this is a philanthropic effort. The film revolves around a young, deaf, African American Boxer who ends up facing tragic events. In short, he finds himself raising his 6 month old baby son on his own as a single father.    We have cast actors Harold Perrineau Jr from shows like LOST, HBO’s Oz and films like The best Man, The Matrix Trilogy, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet, etc. AND Larry Gilliard Jr from (The Wire, AandE’s The Beast, Gangs of new York , etc)

As a team we are trying to reach historical heights. We have cast  deaf actor Michael Anthony Spady (The Hammer (film about UFC’s Matt Hamill), Sympathy for Delicious)  If we were to get studio level distribution with a finished feature, Michael would be the 1st ever African American Deaf Male Actor to have played the lead role in a feature film on a mainstream level.

We need the support  of all the boxing fans, fighters, writers, promoters, etc to really stir this movement and help us get this film made.  It’s time to make a difference…whose down with helping out?
