The Royale by Marco Ramirez

'Ain't about bein' no Heavyweight Champion of the White World. It's about bein' Champion, period.'

'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 boxing promoter hatches a plan for the 'Fight of the Century', The Sport might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion, but at what cost? It's not just a retired champ he's facing, it's 'The Great White Hope'. In daring to realise his dream, is Jay responsible for putting African American lives in the danger zone?

Told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale is inspired by the often overlooked story of Jack Johnson, a boxer who - at the height of the Jim Crow era - became the most famous and the most notorious black man on Earth.
