If you are true boxing fan then you certainly must watch this documentary if you decide to do that I guarantee that you will learn a lot about boxing but more important you will learn about life and how life can knock you down harder then any other heavy weight champion in this world....I dont want to use the spoilers so forget about me telling you all the "juice"details about this one cause that aint going to happened....also you should maybe watch this by yourself in the room because you might cry at the end.......
