Boxing Movie "The Fighter" Could Join Other Great Boxing Films - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.com

Boxing Movie "The Fighter" Could Join Other Great Boxing Films - Associated Content from Yahoo! - associatedcontent.comGreat boxing movies of the recent past include the Rocky movies, Cinderella Man, and my all-time favorite, Raging Bull. Who else but Robert DeNiro could make movie magic of great lines like "I don' go down fuh no-bod-y!" That was DeNiro's Jake LaMotta character telling his brother he wouldn't take a dive in a fight no matter if the brother told the mob boss he'd deliver.

I didn't know we'd be waiting so long when I wrote an Associated Content article in October 2007 about The Fighter, a boxing film modeled on the life of "Irish" Mickey Ward. Finally, the movie has been released to strong, favorable reviews.
