Director's statement
"The climax of friendship is displayed in KNOCKOUT. There is no bad friend or negative, mean and bad natured person in the film. People go through changes in the circle of each other’s behavior. Sport is so powerful that it can conquer all the hardships. Friendship can show children a better way of life. For a good friend one must do anything they can".
