With the likes of Raging Bull, Southpaw, The Fighter and myriad Rocky outings, it’s fair to say that the underdog boxer tale space is well and truly chockers. They all need to huddle up a bit closer now though, for this hard-hitting tale of triumph over adversity, starring Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart and Katey Sagal, deserves its time in the ring. It’s the story of Vinny Pazienza (Teller). He may not be a household name like many of his contemporaries, but he did make world champion – although only through sheer determination, after his manager wanted him to retire. An upcoming match against Roberto Durán has Vinny hungry like the wolf (sorry), but fate has other plans. Will Vinny get back up off the canvas, or will he be floored for good?
