"Superstar" Billy Graham!!

Fist Fighter is just another bad action movie filled with wanna be chop socky kung-fu "heroes". A really terrible movie that has nothing going for it except the legendary W.W.W.F. heavyweight champion Billy Graham. Yes the "Superstar" guest stars as the arm wrestler who challenges the "star" of this straight-to-video flick to a friendly game of arm wrestling. If you ever wanted to see the man in a movie, well this is your best bet. But the novelty wears off when his screen time is up because all you're left with is a waste of half inch tape.

Not recommended, unless you're a "Superstar" Billy Graham fan.
