In an article about the film Los Angeles Times reporter Dana Parsons has said that the film largely distorts the actual events. In the film the reporter, Kernan Jr. (who works for a major Denver paper), does not learn that Satterfield is an impersonator until after the article is published and then seriously considers ignoring this fact for the sake of his burgeoning career. In reality the actual reporter, J.R. Moehringer, did extensive research and discovered the boxer's true identity long before any article was ever published. Moehringer then changed the focus of the article to "describe how he'd been duped." [7] Parsons goes on to express irritation that the film depicted journalism in such a disparaging light.
