With the help of veteran promoter, Arliss King and the guidance of a former champ, Ed embarks on the come back of a lifetime. When Ed starts winning and with his popularity soaring, he draws the attention of an unscrupulous fight promoter, White Ferguson.

This movie is terrible!
10 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You would think that Tonya Harding would get the hint to never return to the movies after her disastrous debut in Breakaway. Her acting is just as bad as ever. Not to mention the storyline is dry and boring. Save your money and don't rent or buy this flick!

Let's be perfectly honest here, I fell asleep because this film failed to keep my interest. My suggestion to the writers of this film is leave the boxing films to the real writers in Hollywood because they know how to keep the audience's attention.

Also the next time you want to cast for a female character. Don't cast Tonya Harding, that woman is box office poison.
