“Undisputed” TV Series: What we’d like to see

Contents

Followers of the “Undisputed” franchise have been just lately greeted with some very welcome news with the announcement that the collection would transition right into a television collection, as coated in a current article by The Hollywood Reporter. Provided that the report makes use of the time period “reboot” in reference to the forthcoming collection, it’s not totally clear in the mean time if the present will continue the story as seen within the “Undisputed” films, although the involvement of collection mainstay Isaac Florentine (director of the second and third movies, and producer on the fourth) would recommend some type of connective tissue.

It also remains to be seen if the collection’ headliner, Scott Adkins, will return to reprise the position of Yuri Boyka, aka The Most Full Fighter within the World, but with the involvement of Florentine and Millennium Movies, you definitely can’t be blamed for protecting your fingers crossed.

With the collection set to get rolling in March 2020 in Bulgaria, fans will little question have lots to theorize and speculate upon as info on the show releases. In any case, both the “Undisputed” franchise and the character of Boyka are immensely beloved by martial arts followers all over the world, and the prospect of seeing Boyka returning to the ring as soon as once more is an thrilling one for devotees of the collection.

With that in mind, we at KFK can be remiss if we didn’t supply our ideas on the place we expect the collection might go in an episodic format. Relying on what degree of continuity the collection maintains with the movies, there may be a bit of modification required but these bullet factors would definitely type an excellent base for the inspiration of the collection.

So hold tight, readers – as the world awaits its cable or streaming debut, here is what KFK assume can be nice to see in “Undisputed” the collection!

Boyka’s origins

Right here’s a true no-brainer. Boyka regards himself as The Most Full Fighter within the World, a gift granted to him by God Himself, no less. As fans of the “Undisputed” franchise, don’t we deserve to not only see what makes Boyka tick, but the place he came from, and what life experiences satisfied him that his preventing expertise have been conferred upon him by the Almighty?

Going additional than that, take a look at how much we’ve seen Boyka evolve over the course of three films. He’s already in prison for first-degree homicide, and he’s received no qualms in any way about killing anybody who grants him an unfair (and in his mind, unnecessary) advantage in a battle. By the third time we see him, Boyka’s going out of his means to beg the forgiveness of the widow of an opponent he unintentionally killed, and sacrificing the whole lot he has to set things proper. It’s apparent that a man like that has gone via an intense trial by hearth even earlier than we first meet him, and it’s a narrative that ought to be – nay, have to be – explored to absolutely do him justice. We’ve seen Boyka battle many epic battles in the ring in his three appearances to date, however it’s clear which might be many extra that’s he already fought that we haven’t seen. That alone might type the idea for one significantly superior MMA collection!

Rematch with Chambers

This one is fairly self-explanatory. With the way by which “Undisputed 2: Last Man Standing” introduced the world to the character of Yuri Boyka, the movie was also orchestrating a perfectly well-executed bait-and-switch. Boyka might have technically been the antagonist of the movie, but not solely have been his preventing expertise merely out-of-this-world, his mindset was that of a real warrior.

Simply from seeing his livid reaction to studying that his first match with George “Iceman” Chambers had been rigged in his favour, we clearly noticed just how much Boyka’s code of honour means to him. On prime of that, Chambers was both written and portrayed by Michael Jai White as a hot-tempered, boastful jerk, flagrantly abusing his timid supervisor and nearly everybody else round him at any given time. Positive, he’d turned over a brand new leaf by the top of the movie, however “Undisputed 2” however sets the audience up to cheer for Boyka to beat Chambers mindless for its first three-quarters. Now, after both men have gone by means of their very own means of humbling themselves, what could possibly be more satisfying for The Most Full Fighter within the World than to rectify his only recognized defeat? If there’s one factor followers of the “Undisputed” collection are collectively aching for, it’s to see Boyka and Chambers go head-to-head within the ring one last time!

“Boyka Miyagi”

Attempt to put your self in Boyka’s head – God has given you a present, only one. You’re The Most Full Fighter in the World. In fact, even with a divinely bestowed present like that, you’re not going to be round endlessly. Indeed, you’re fortunate to have been in a position to reverse the knee damage that almost put an end to your MMA profession. Think about sitting on the bench with a nasty knee for the rest of your life, or preventing your means to the top and retiring altogether when there’s nobody left to beat.

When God himself has gifted you with one thing so much greater than yourself, you’re going to want that legacy to stay on all the time if your identify is Yuri Boyka. So what could possibly be a better means for Boyka to honour the present he’s been given than to tackle a scholar and cross down his information of preventing? This wouldn’t have to be the complete focus of the present; it might easily be handled as a B-story to the primary arc of the collection, or maybe compartmentalized into a handful of episodes as a one-off story with Boyka nearing his retirement.

Nevertheless, the thought of Boyka mentoring one other up-and-coming fighter to successfully assume the mantle of The Most Full Fighter in the World can be, we expect, a perfect continuation of his journey. And, in this current period of warrior ladies dominating action films, the collection might do lots worse than to throw us a real curveball by making his apprentice female, as properly.

Boyka’s Enemies Record

Scott Adkins might have carved out his most iconic position as Yuri Bokya, however he’s hardly the one martial arts virtuoso the “Undisputed” collection has roped into its forged. “Undisputed 2”, in fact, set him opposite Michael Jai White, whereas 2010’s “Undisputed 3: Redemption” pulled in Marko Zaror as the devilishly sleazy Dolor, along with stunt veteran Ilram Choi and Capoeira master Lateef Crowder. “Boyka: Undisputed 4” only ramped up its expertise roster additional by recruiting the likes of Brahim Achabbakhe, Emilien De Falco, Andy Nguyen, and the towering Martyn Ford, along with the film’s personal battle choreographer, the astonishingly nimble Tim Man.

And, even before the collection shifted from boxing to MMA, the unique “Undisputed” had two genuinely physically gifted leads anchoring the film in the form of Wesley Snipes and Vhing Rhames. For motion aficionados, the “Undisputed” collection is arguably rivalled within the English-speaking world only by the “John Wick” franchise for pulling in a Murderers’ Row of martial arts masters to do their thing. So, it simply goes without saying that “Undisputed” has that bar to clear as its launches itself into the world of episodic television.

Except for the aforementioned rematch with Chambers, seeing Dolor return for some payback would definitely be a delight for fans. Nevertheless, what would also make an outstanding addition to the “Undisputed” canon can be to see Boyka face-off with a number of the alumni of the game changer that was “The Raid” films. It was just some months in the past that we saw Scott trading blows with Iko Uwais (himself soon to be seen in his own upcoming martial arts collection, Netflix’s “Wu Assassins”) in “Triple Threat”, and this summer time’s “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” recruited the immense skills of Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman. All three would make for a suitably robust set of adversaries for Boyka and the collection might take that magic even additional with Joe Taslim, who’s lately gotten to channel both anti-hero and villain alike in “The Night Comes for Us” and Cinemax’s “Warrior”.

Clearly, “The Raid” crew would hardly be the ONLY strong decisions to give Boyka a run for his money, however as anybody who’s seen any one of many films listed above can attest, they’d get “Undisputed: The Series” off to a incredible start!

Bokya Hits the Massive Time

Boyka’s character arc within the “Undisputed” films has been a captivating one to comply with, one that’s seen him chasing the dragon in some type or style over the course of three films.

We’ve seen him rise to the highest of the jail MMA world in “Undisputed 2”, solely to fall to the bottom and have to climb back up in “Undisputed 3”. The latter ended with Boyka operating off to lastly claim his freedom with a briefcase full of money by his aspect, and “Boyka: Undisputed 4” noticed him lastly on the verge of attaining his dream, solely to make the last word sacrifice for the sake of a lady whose life he inadvertently destroyed, and find himself in prison once extra.

Via all of it, we’ve seen Boyka humble himself after realizing he wasn’t fairly ready to take the title of the Most Complete Fighter in the World, along with redeeming himself as a person for the guilt he’s come to feel over the lives he’s taken up to now. With all of that in thoughts, what could possibly be more becoming, and more earned, of an consequence than for Boyka to lastly get every part he’s ever needed?

What if Boyka not only made it out of prison for good, however truly fulfilled his biggest ambition and made it to all the best way to the top of the MMA world? Imagine Yuri Boyka moving into the Octagon, a literal stadium of followers cheering “Boy-ka! Boy-ka! Boy-ka!” as The Most Full Fighter in the World makes his skilled debut within the UFC’s largest title card yet. “Boyka goes pro” alone might make for a very thrilling collection, and that’s without even stepping into the dozens of other instructions the show might take that premise just by itself.

We’ve adopted Boyka as he’s had his goals and his knee built up, shattered, and rebuilt stronger than ever earlier than. He’s earned his shot on the huge time, and there’s arguably no higher storyline for “Undisputed: The Series” to take him on than to finally put him in reach of all the things he’s ever dreamed of…
