Boxing is a contact sport that is definitely not for the faint-hearted. I am not talking about the amateur boxing or Olympic boxing here. I am in fact hinting towards a more bloody pro-boxing that is one magnificent spectacle. In this era of UFC, raw boxing is losing its sheen, but there are movies that can bring that flavor back.
Rocky Marciano, Sugar Ray Robinson, Sonny Liston, Ali, Tyson, Mayweather, Pacquiao, such illustrious names have always ensured the sport remains in the limelight. Today, we will bring to you the best boxing movies/series of all time that are a MUST watch.
In 1976, Sylvester Stallone came like a tornado and swept everyone’s heart with Rocky I. He became a household character with his Hercules biceps and kind charisma. In 2018, Creed II released and kept Rocky’s character alive and strong. Rumors are that an 8th Rocky series movie can happen if things fall in place. Take a bow!
A classic movie that deals not just with the boxing ring but also with a man’s broken personal life. This movie is Martin Scorsese’s best work if I am to be believed. I really would like you to keep patience and watch this full.
