Stephen 'tWitch' Boss Stars In Underground Bare-Knuckle Boxing Drama 'Prized'

Prized

The short story goes... 

Prized tells the story of a star boxer, Sam Carraway (played by Stephen 'tWitch' Boss), who must redeem himself after doing prison time for assaulting a referee. Dead broke and banned from professional boxing, Sam goes to a place he knows well from his youth - an underground bare-knuckle boxing arena, in a grungy, downtown LA warehouse, which features the dirtiest fighting you can imagine. No rules. No medics. No TV cameras. 

After a conversation with Charlie (played by Jack Plotnick), the greedy scumbag who runs this underground world, Sam agrees to throw the biggest fight of the night for some cash; losing this fight will mean swallowing his pride and putting himself into a potentially deadly match. 

But as it turns out, there's a lot more on the line for Sam than we even realized.

The filmmakers behind the project - writer/director Jason Carley, and producers Jacob Patrick and Jonny Jay, recently ended a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $26,000, to help get the film made.

Promising realism and grittiness, Prized is being shot on the Red Epic, around various locations in downtown Los Angeles - including what the filmmakers refer to as a Fight Club-worthy 4,000-square foot warehouse, and a hospital sound stage.

If you recognize Stephen "tWitch" Boss ( or his name) it might be because he came in second on the 4th season of the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance, and co-starred in the 2012 dance movie Step Up Revolution.

Here's a teaser:
