Storyline

This epic story of the rise of three of the most successful boxers of our time challenges the perception of the American Dream through the intimately personal life trajectories of Evander Holyfield, Bernard Hopkins and Mike Tyson. Much like modern day gladiators, our protagonists come from the bottom rungs of society, choosing the path of boxing or "the poor man's sport," as a last resort, and an alternative to much bleaker options such as prison or, worse yet, death. Following these fighters' paths from success to self-discovery, they recount their battles while illuminating our country's most critical social issues, including the struggle with poverty, racial inequality, broken homes, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and the failures of our educational and prison systems. CHAMPS unearths the unique resilience of these men in the face of life's most difficult obstacles - from personal finance to sustained brain injury - and highlights how our society and their industry exalts their ...

It is one of the most inspiring and motivating movie that i have seen lately.Everything about this movie is amazing.Struggle,pain we have in our life and how to overcome it is this movie all about. I always loved boxing though it is not a big sport here in Nepal.i watched it on TV,Youtube.I am a big fan of IRON mike Tyson.He is the man. Poverty,fame and the downfall these things are well defined in this movie. Watch it you will not regret it.This movie is a beautiful journey about passion and the things that you will do to overcome things that you are not able to do. I loved CHAMPS. I give it 8 stars out of 10.
