King of the Outback

Fight Card series

Authored by David James Foster, Jack Tunney

Outback Australia 1954

Two rival tent boxing troupes clash over a territorial dispute in the Outback town of Birdsville. In the sweltering heat, tensions simmer, tempers flare, and as things reach boiling point, a boxing tent is burned to the ground.

Fighting men know only one way to solve their disputes, and that's in the ring. The solution, a show-down, smack-down, winner take all bout between the two rival outfits.

In the blue corner, representing 'Walter Wheeler's Boxing Sideshow' is Tommy King, a young aboriginal boxer with a big heart and iron fists.

In the red corner, representing 'Arnold Sanderson's Boxing Show', is 'Jumpin' Jack Douglas, a monstrous wrecking machine from the city - a man who'll do anything to win.

The fight - brutal. In the world of Tent Boxing, in the harsh Australian Outback, weight divisions and rules don't count for much. It's a fight to decide, who is indeed, King of the Outback!
