i am so much into this true story about James. J. Braddock. they said, in all the history of the boxing game you find no human interest story to compare with the life narrative of him. i watched this movie for like five, six times but i wont get bored and i cried even i already knew the story. i cant help myself. it was such a great life's story. and the quotes were great!
i cant forget those quotes.
