Appreciating women boxers in a match
22 April 2015 | by maria-silva2170See all my reviews

I'm a huge sports enthusiast and love boxing in general, it's a sport that is not only physically demanding but a mental contest as well, so when I saw the trailer to this showcasing women boxing, I couldn't wait to watch the film. What I liked about Down but Not Out was the rawness of boxing. I like how the director was able to catch on film first the men's bouts and then the women's. The contrast between them makes you wonder, as an outsider, why women would participate in such an aggressive combative sport. It also made me understand and appreciate a woman boxer, showing a true test of her physical strength, mental alertness and courage. The coach was also amazing, you could see he invested his heart and soul into the training of his boxers.
