recent surge of investment interest in the Australian
Feature film “Fight of the Century”.
The film is based on a true story that happened
at the dawn of the 20th Century, when a sporting
event literally shook the world. It was staged
in Australia because the event was banned in other
countries due to the contestants. It took place
in Sydney on Boxing Day 1908. Beginning at 11am
with little ceremony, it was over in time for
No Australian sports men or women were involved!
TOMMY BURNS, was a Canadian boxer. He was the
recognized World Champion and JACK JOHNSON was
an American boxer who had literally chased BURNS
around the world. They slugged it out in front
of 16,000 men, and one woman who happened to be
the wife of the famous visiting American correspondent
and author JACK LONDON.
As well as the 16,000 inside, another 25,000 fans
had to be turned away from the venue, which was
a makeshift stadium constructed on a disused market
garden situated close to the harbour, and east
of the city centre in a Sydney suburb called Rushcutters
The fight had a lasting significance on world
sporting, social and political history. This was
because the challenger, JACK JOHNSON was a black
American - and he won!
This is an important historical film with a worldwide
market. The characters and story are internationally
known and the sport of boxing has hundreds of
millions of fans everywhere.
Over 5 years of work and research went into the
screenplay and features all of the characters
involved at the time. These included the promoter,
HUGH “Big Deal” McINTOSH, the two
Australian boxers BILL SQUIRES and BILL LANG who
would fight Tommy Burns before the arrival of
Jack Johnson. The story features many local identities
