A male boxer mocks Maggie, acting as if surprised that she's female and making fun of her "little bitty t*tties," saying they look like mosquito bites and that they're barely a mouthful. Another male boxer then imitates the former boxer, ending up falling to the floor and then mock humping it.

We see the boxing round lady (the one who carries the boxing round number around the ring on a card raised above her head between the rounds) in very small shorts (that show the lower parts of her butt cheeks) that the camera briefly focuses on. We later see another such young and shapely woman who wears a cleavage and midriff-revealing top.

A woman attempts suicide by biting through her tongue. There is blood everywhere, and we hear that she almost died.

A woman's breathing tube is disconnected and we see her close her eyes and lie still; her IV is injected with an overdose of adrenaline and we see her monitor flat line.

Two women box: many hard punches land, one boxer hits the other in the face with her elbow (we see a bloody bruise), one boxer's eye is swollen shut, and one boxer is hit hard in the face, falls hard onto the mat and hits her neck on a stool (we hear a crunch, she lies unconscious on the mat and her neck appears twisted). She is paralysed by the incident.

Two women box: one boxer holds the other under the chin, shoves her to the mat (we see the woman on the mat with a bloody face), and then the boxer standing hits the one on the mat and knocks her out.

Two women box: one is hit hard in the face, her nose is slightly broken and there is a very bloody cut across the bridge; a man squeezes and twists the nose to put it back in place (we hear crunching as she winces).

Two women box: one is hit in the face several times and has a bloody nose.

Two men box: one has a very bloody gash under his eye (his eye is also swollen shut), a man jams a swab deep into the cut, then when the man is punched again, the camera zooms into the cut and we see it close up.

Two men box: one is slammed against the ropes then knocked to the mat. His opponent then punches him repeatedly in the head and stomach (the young man's face is left very bloody), another man pulls him away and then punches the opponent hard in the face, knocking him to the mat and he spits out a bloody tooth.

A woman has a large infected sore on her leg and we hear that she may have to lose the leg. A woman's arms have bedsores at the elbow.

6 a****, 3 t***, 3 s****, 2 n******, 2 f****, 1 b**** and 1 d***. Also 22 h****, 9 d****, 6 G***, 5 J******, 3 craps, and 2 G**d****.

Some miscellaneous people drink beer at a boxing match.

Some of the boxing scenes involving injuries are quite intense. Fixing the broken nose is particularly gruesome.

One of the main characters has a very strained relationship with his daughter, and another main character is also treated poorly by her selfish family.

The end scenes are intense and distressing.
