Marco Ramirez, playwright
Tyrone Phillips, director
 

Jay “The Sport” Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905, and in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” “The Sport” just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion.

Based loosely on true events in the life of the first African-American heavyweight champion Jack Johnson, this play asks, “How different are things in the present?”
