Boh Ngau (Chinese: ) also known by its English title The Champions is a 1985 Hong Kong Chinese language football movie starring Yuen Biao.
"Fun soccer action-comedy that's as messy and enjoyable as early eighties-Hong Kong Cinema gets. The Champions isn't a showstopper, but for fans of Yuen Biao, it's an absolute must." -lovehkfilm.com, http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews/champions.htm
In this sports comedy film, Biao is taunted by rival football teams. At first he is just a ball boy and a punch bag for leading villain Dick Wei. But after too many beatings, Biao decides to play for another local team and go against Dick Wei in a one off football at the end. The film also tackles problems of jealousy, corruption and bullying in sports.
Yuen Biao appears in Boh Ngau and Dragons Forever. Chun Yeung Yuen directed Boh Ngau and wrote the screenplay for Drunken Tai Chi. Yuen Biao and Moon Lee appear in Boh Ngau and Twinkle - Twinkle Lucky Stars. Yuen Biao and Dick Wei appear in Boh Ngau and Project A. The Damned United (2009).
