Description by OLDIES.com:
The story of a young, lightning fast Latino boxer who must navigate the path between his newfound fame, with all its seductive trappings, and his humble yet proud roots growing up on the hardscrabble, mean streets of Jackson Heights, Queens. Surrounded by his childhood friends and an old school trainer, Lex Vargas endures a devastating personal loss before turning professional, eventually signing with a high-profile promoter in order to accelerate his career and get a title shot. The move brings Lex fame, fortune, a new house and a sexy girlfriend - but threatens to undermine the longtime bonds and proud heritage he shares with his buddies from the old neighborhood in this hard-hitting, action-packed story.
John Leguizamo makes an assured directorial debut with this action-packed drama. Based on story by Leguizamo and Frank Pugliese, UNDEFEATED tells the story of Lex Vargas (Leguizamo), a Latino boxer from the rough-and-tumble neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens. But when he finds success in the ring, the whirlwind of money and fame creates a rift between Lex and his friends. He must find a way to resolve these conflicts while maintaining his focus in the ring.
