In the midst of boxing's contemporary golden age -¬ the 1980's -¬ stood two fighters who established a captivating rivalry. Their pair of bouts within a span of just over 5 months in 1980 had all the trappings of instant classics. Sugar Ray Leonard, an American hero, who had become a household name after a Gold Medal-winning performance at the 1976 Summer Olympics that led to numerous corporate sponsorships, versus the Latino champion, Roberto Duran, the toughest -¬ some said meanest -¬ fighter of all time. It was not just the drama and action of these fights that would endure, but those two words uttered in the second of their clashes, which would create a sense of mystery, bewilderment and intrigue to the present day. No Mas unveils for the first time what really happened, going behind the scenes of these two showdowns with the help of boxing experts, family members and the two fighters themselves.

No Mas, No Mas

30 for 30: No Mas (2013)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Excellent entry in the series takes a look at the two fights between Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard. The first fight went to Duran but the second one became somewhat legendary after Duran said "No Mas" in the ring, turned his back and quit in the middle of the round. The documentary has a great collection of interviews with the people involved in the fight, those watching it as well as boxing experts who give their theories on what happened that night in New Orleans. NO MAS is certainly a highly entertaining entry in the ESPN series and especially coming from somewhat who wasn't fully aware of the entire situation behind the two fights. The documentary did a very good job at setting up this second fight and why it was so important to Leonard and especially after he had suffered a defeat. The film also does a nice job at looking at the fight from Duran's side, although I'm not sure boxing fans are going to be happy with the words he has to say towards the end of the movie when the two fighters are re-united in Panama to talk about what happened that night. I think the best thing the film does is really sell the sport and show how great it once used to be. Getting to see the boxing clips from the two matches was certainly another major plus and has more action than most boxing matches for a complete year have today.
