FIGHTING is a drama about a young street seller who gets involved in an underground fighting ring to make money. The film was passed ‘15’ due to strong violence.

The BBFC Guidelines at ‘12’ for violence state that ‘There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood’. While much of the film holds back from showing the impacts of punches and their result, one fight scene contains several instances of a character’s head hitting a marble floor heavily, with a very distinctive bone-on-marble sound effect which was felt to emphasise the injury. The final showdown also contains some strong impacts and leaves both fighters bloody and battered, thereby removing the film from ‘12’ and placing it at ‘15’.
