8 Great... Movies To Inspire A Boxing Career

Jan 20, 2011 Comments


It’s Rocky, set in the Depression. Except it’s true, most of it. Boxer James Braddock (Russell Crowe) was on top of the heap until an injury derailed his career. Now the "Bully of Bergen" is beaten down and barely able to put bread on the table for his family. That, until he gets his ticket back to the top: a fight against the ferocious Max Baer, an opponent so laughably evil (at least, as portrayed here) that it would be unconscionable for Braddock to lose. All you have to do is remember the film’s title to know how things work out in the end.
