This is by far the best boxing film i have ever seen. Honest, gutsy and compelling viewing with superb fight scenes. A small love affair for the ladies, but uppercuts, hooks and suplexes (!) galore for the men. Stunning. Brian Dennehy is great, proper old school bad guy and the two boxers are excellent. The final fight scene a bit cheesy, but the first fight, against 'black death' still gives me goosebumps, 17 years later!!
