Boxing's most lovable loser
2 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

This biography is about one of boxing's funniest characters, Bruce (The Mouse) Strauss, who boasts of being knocked out on every continent except Antarctica ... he retired in the early 1990s, and has guested on David Letterman, with the same dry sense of humor that Bob Uecker has in baseball ... John Savage did a great job of capturing the Mouse's nonsensical character, and considering the budget was just over 100 grand, they did a super job on this picture ... fight fans will love all the boxing figures in the cast.
