Arís is proud to present Fighting Words by Sunil Kuruvilla. Directed by Mary Saville.

In 1980, Welsh boxer Johnny Owen traveled from the small Welsh mining town of Merthyr Tydfil to Los Angeles to challenge World Bantamweight Champion, Lupe Pintor, for the title. A hundred men from the town accompanied Owen to watch the contest at ringside.

Fighting Words is the story of three women who stayed behind - Mrs. Davies, who was present at Owen's birth; Nia, a radio presenter, who coached him on how to handle the press in LA; and her sister Peg, a boxer in all but name.

These women are all fighters too. But they must fight with words, and their fighting words will have you on the ropes...
