    This guy portraying the legendary champion Roberto Durán, does not even look like a boxer. Durán was a tough Panamanian , I believe, born in Guararé whose dad was mexican descent. Edgar Ramírez looks more like a “disco guy” who works out.

    Where the hell is Freddy Brown mentioned for this movie? He played a huge part in Duran’s career along with Arcel.

    Wow… such a terrific subject some good actors Blades and De Niro, and it appears to be a bust…directors and editors make or break…sad Duran didn’t get the movie he deserved
