Contrary to the way it was portrayed in the film, the Baer-Braddock fight was not a dramatic, action-packed fight. The New York Times account called it "one of the worst heavyweight championship contests in the long history of the ring," noting that Baer, "ever the clown, didn't want to fight" and "could not be serious, even as a fortune was slipping through his fingers."
Before the title appears the following: "In all the history of the boxing game, you'll find no human interest story to compare with the life narrative of James J. Braddock." - Damon Runyon (1936)
