The Brawler – You gotta stop this fight
“Based on the true events behind ‘Rocky’. Local boxer, Chuck Wepner (Zack McGowan) was slinging liquor in Bayonne, New Jersey when he got the call. Chuck was going to fight the Heavy Weight Champion of the World, Muhammad Ali. Chuck trained hard, pushing himself to the limit so he could go toe to toe with the greatest fighter of all time. His heroic battle with Ali was only the beginning of a wild ride that takes Chuck from the lows of New Jersey to highs of Hollywood.”
I think he was getting high with pain and fame…
The film is directed by Ken Kushner.
Release date: January 18, 2019 (in select theaters and on VOD).
