Four Kings is a 2 part feature-length project recounting boxing’s golden era, the decade between 1980-89 when four great boxers, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns and Roberto Duran, came together and fought each other in a riveting series of bouts.
These men would fight one another nine times over the decade. Like the other great rivalries in sport they brought out the best in each other.
Four Kings is based on the best-selling book of the same name by George Kimball. The producers undertook four full day interviews with Kimball before his passing in the summer of 2011. As a result, many of the stories, back stories and anecdotes of this incredible decade can only be told by this series.
The project holds a unique licensing agreement with Top Rank. Consequently there will be footage of 27 fights available to the series - more than in any previous boxing production. Each of the Four Kings has agreed to take part in the series granting us extended interviews over a series of days.
It was a unique period of American history. Through their rivalries they brought boxing to new heights and produced unprecedented multimillion-dollar gates along the way.
