This made-for-TV biography about Rocky Marciano takes us into a journey from his early beginnings to finally becoming the Brockton Blockbuster-Undefeated Heavyweight Champion of the world. George C. Scott is very memorable as Rocky's father,a struggling shoe factory worker,who vows to never let Rocky live the same hard life. Jon Favreau puts in a very nice performance as Rocky,with his fight scenes being very credible. Rocky's overhand right as always was a knockout. A special dramatic part which shows Rocky's gentle side is his admiration of the Brown Bomber,Joe Louis (played admirably by Duane Davis).The relationship between the two fighters as seen after their fight added an emotional impact on this movie. Anybody interested in boxing history should watch this show,as Rocky Marciano was truly the best heavyweight of all time.
