Wrong title! The film is titled "The Fight" not "The Fighters", 15 January 2015
Author: emhoffk

Great documentary that has behind the scenes dealings as well as amazing fight footage of what was maybe the most significant boxing match of the 20th Century (though you could certainly make the argument for Louis-Schmeling II or Johnson-Jeffries, as well). I tried to search for it on here and you had it under the wrong title. BAM theaters in New York just screened this a month ago, so I know I'm not crazy. It's called "The Fight" as in "The Fight of The Century" as it was billed. It is not titled "The Fighters" - hard enough to find this lost treasure as it is. See BAM link below:
