- James Braddock's first comeback fight. He's months out of practice, wearing borrowed gear, in front of a crowd that's expecting an old man to take a beating, with a belly half-full of hash scarfed down desperately before the fight... and he takes a ranked contender to pieces.
Joe Gould: Where the hell have you been, Jimmy Braddock?!
- The entire last fight. It takes twenty minutes, and is worth every second, even if you know the outcome.
