Trivia

Miles himself was in a near-fatal car crash just one year before his friend died in a car crash. He now wears a green bracelet that reads "Buckle up for Bo" in his honor. The bracelet can be seen in most of his films except for when it doesn't fit his character. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the Duran fight the commentators say that Pazienza is trying to win the belt 3 weight classes higher than the one where he had won his 1st world title. Actually, the gap was 5 weight classes (between lightweight and super middleweight). See more »

Quotes

Kevin Rooney: Hey, we're not done here, Vinny.
Vinny Pazienza: We're not?
Kevin Rooney: No.
Kevin Rooney: We just need to figure out what's next for you. There's a whole world outside the ring.
[pause]
Vinny Pazienza: You know, Kev, I'm getting pretty sick of people talking about me like I'm dead. Like I died in that car wreck. Like it's just over for me.
[pause]
Vinny Pazienza: Kev, I'm gonna fight again.
[pause]
Kevin Rooney: No, you ain't, Vinny.

Boxing Clever
29 November 2016 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This my first IMDb review after years of reading them, upon leaving the cinema though I thought this deserved it. Full marks for this movie, Miles Teller for his performance but most of all for Vinny Paz ( Pazienza ) who this biography is about.

I saw this on a good size screen tonight with an enthusiastic audience, and we loved it. There were a lot of laughs throughout and a tension in the room, I really felt for this guy! Great performances from the whole cast and Miles Teller was on top form looking extremely buff. Nice to see Katey Segal looking fantastic as she always has . I wouldn't want to spoil this for anyone who hasn't seen it, although if you are a boxing fan you already know the story, just to say at the end of the film there was a round of applause, the Italians being the most vocal ha ha

I only wish there had been more ~ now I want to watch all this boxer's fights

Recommended!
