This movie was really good. It inspires you to do youre best for what you believe in. It shows you what a father can do for his family. This movie is really good it is exciting and suspenseful and at a point it is emotional. Its a movie about a poor family and an amazing boxer who is the father. it is based during the great depression and this wealthy boxer lost it all. This is a very good movie and I recommend it.
This doc gives fascinating never before seen footage about this amazing fighter. This is a must see for anyone interested in the story. Very emotional and powerful.
It is especially interesting to view the interview with famous Boxing referee Ron Lipton who actually met Braddock and anaylizes the strategy Braddock used to win the title.
