"If you take “The Fighter” and strip off its melodramatic arc and the stars’ and the industry’s self-regard, then compress what’s left into 12 poetically concise minutes, you get something almost as good, almost as grown-up, as “I Beat Mike Tyson." - Boston Globe

In 2005, an unknown Irish boxer beat Mike Tyson in front of hundreds
of thousands of people. Then he disappeared.

Filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein rediscovers boxer Kevin McBride,
raising his children in a gritty Boston suburb. Kevinʼs body is
deteriorating, yet he compulsively continues to fight.

This lyrical film finds a boxer at the end of his career – engaging in
the Sisyphean task that is his life.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
