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 »
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 »
Vinny, we started this in a basement. In a fucking basement! Now, go out there and show me how you do things. Show me how you live. Show me how you fight!
Want me to show you how I fight?

Based on a true story, Vinny Pazienza overcomes a terrible car accident to return to the sport he truly loves, Boxing. I was a bit hesitant to see this movie because of all the previous movies about fighters. However the director quickly immerses you into Vinny's world and you are immediately hooked. What I liked most about the movie was how all the characters were so believable. The close family relationship, the mother's ritual when all the relatives are glued to the tube, the family dinners, ornaments etc. Everyone has a lot of soul and individuality. Vinny's determination is all important, but he has the affection and love from friends and family. Most of all he has his coach, portrayed by Aaron Eckhart. A man who is fighting is own demons of being a has been, wanting a winner, but also knowing that a coach must do what is best for those under his charge, regardless of what is best for him or others.
