Rating: 3.5/4 -- Never before or since has a boxing film so thoroughly depicted the sport's fans as a mob of petty and sadistic louts who want their pound of flesh and nothing less. Full Review

Rating: A- -- This is one of the top boxing films ever made, along with Raging Bull and Body and Soul. Full Review

Its boilerplate fatalism undone by overbearing moralizing and the fact that Ryan's boxer is too one-dimensionally good to register as tragic.

Description by OLDIES.com:

Boxing Wednesdays. Wrestling on Fridays. Stoker Thompson is on Paradise City's Wednesday card, fighting after the main event. He's been twenty years in the game and is sure he's just one punch away from big paydays. But there's one thing Stoker doesn't yet know: his manager wants him to take a dive tonight.
