The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza who, after a near fatal car crash which left him not knowing if he'd ever walk again, made one of sport's most incredible comebacks.
The fight coordinator was knocked out by Edwin Rodriguez when filming the final fight (on the final day of shooting). Ben Younger explained that this led to a much shorter than planned sequence in the movie.
I mean, you just don't know how to give up.
Vinny Pazienza: No, I do. Trust me, I do. I know exactly how to give up. You know what scares the shit out of me, Kev? Is that it's easy.
Vinny Pazienza didn't make his comeback against Duran. He had actually won 6 fights in 1,5 years after his return from injury before he fought Duran for the 1st time.
In the first part of the end credits, footage of the real people is shown.
