Gypsy Queen

Can two men raised to fight ever learn to love?

This is the story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell, a bare-knuckle fighter and traveller, who enters the world of professional boxing which puts him on a collision course with his roots, his identity and his greatest fear.

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

Gypsy Queen is an unconventional love story between two fighters who discover the greatest challenge lies outside the ring.
