Their chance meeting on a park bench in Oxford Gardens one summer afternoon sets in motion an unlikely friendship and an uplifting journey through their respective fears; and through hope, faith and love; to a stoic acceptance of whatever life throws at them.

    Isn’t this Southpaw? What’s wrong with Nigerian filmmakers? It used to be illiteracy but there’s no excuse anymore.

      Er, how exactly is this Southpaw??? From the trailer and synopsis it doesn’t read anything like Southpaw!!! Or Creed, or Rocky, or The Boxer, or The Hurricane, or The Champ, or Raging Bull, or the multitude of movies about boxing or boxers that have come before!!! No, this is Oxford Gardens. It’s a separate entity and by the looks of it could very well be a landmark production. You obviously have some beef with Nigerian filmmakers implying they are illiterate (can’t seem to fathom why) yet you display an alarming level of ignorance when it comes to filmmaking or films in general even within this particular genre. Mtcheeew. Southpaw… really??? Again Mtcheeew!!!
