    great movie

    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.

    Great background expert

    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.
