GREAT MINI-SERIES!
29 September 2004 | by starpixSee all my reviews

Watched this first run, haven't been able to find since. Great story, especially if you are into boxing. Marc Singer is perfect in this role. Can't wait to see again. Very uplifting story! Made on coattails of "Rocky", "The Champ", etc, etc. Very realistic for the time. You always wanted to tune into the next episode, kept you hanging. Met Marc Singer at a convention and asked him about this series. He said it was one of the most enjoyable roles he played. He is truly a nice guy. He missed his flight from NY to LA so he could sign each and every autograph for each fan that day. Great sense of humor also. The woman were swooning. Hope there will be a release of this - someday. I know many people who recall it.
