Check out the trailer for Russ Parr‘s TVOne original movie, “Ringside” starring Tyler Lepley, Allen Maldonado, Sevyn Streeter and Jackie Long. It airs this Sunday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. EST.
“Ringside” follows the biggest fight in boxing history that will take place May 7 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spencer “Timber” Collier (Maldonado) defends his title against the undefeated Jaxon Hollie (Lepley). “Boxing 365,” the popular documentary series, chronicles the events leading up to the big fight. Jaxon, a college educated boxer, deals with the issue of being his brother (Long) and his sister’s keeper.
Jaxon’s record label is in the red due in part that his only artist is his very untalented little brother, TC (Tequan Richmond). In addition to the backstabbing seedy world of the boxing and recording business, Jaxon’s babysister, Selita (Streeter), a young, naive woman who gets involved with his top heartbreaking producer.
Considering all the distractions of the world of gambling, groupies and drugs, Jaxon falls in love with a freelance photographer (Raney Branch) who may not be who she claims to be. Oddsmakers don’t give Jaxon much of a chance against the much bigger steroid abuser, Spencer Collier. Jaxon Holley eventually figures out that fighting in front of millions is less stressful than all the drama that leads up to the big fight.
“Ringside” also stars Da’Vone McDonald, Julissa Bermudez, Joel Steingold and more. It was produced by Keith Neal and Eric Tomosunas from ATL’s Swirl Films.
