Paschal "Packie" Collins & Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan in The Prizefighter.
Documenting the journey of Irish boxing star Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan and his trainer Paschal ‘Packie’ Collins as they embark on a three-fight deal that catapults them onto the world stage, The Prizefighter marks McMahon’s first foray into feature documentary making.

The Prizefighter is directed by Terry McMahon (Patrick’s Day, Charlie Casanova) and produced by Tim Palmer (Into the West, Patrick’s Day) & John Norton (Fade Street). The film was edited by Maurice O’Carroll, sound design by Nikki Moss and cinematography by Terry McMahon, Linda Curtin, and Richard Finlay.

McMahon’s last feature film Patrick’s Day, starring Moe Dunford and Catherine Walker, received critical acclaim, winning the Audience Award at the Cork International Film Festival, Best Irish Feature Film at the Galway Film Fleadh, and picked up several IFTAs including an award for Best Script.

The Prizefighter made its world premiere at the Kerry International Film Festival in October.

IFTN previously caught up with Terry to find out about how the collaboration came about, making the transition from feature film to feature documentary and the art of invisibility.

The Prizefighter airs on Virgin Media One on January 8 at 10 pm.
