As bareknuckled boxing enters the modern era, brash extrovert Jim Corbett uses new rules and dazzlingly innovative footwork to rise to the top of the top of the boxing world.
In reality, Sullivan had fought Corbett prior to their world championship bout at San Francisco's Olympic Club some years before.
James J. Corbett aka Gentleman Jim:
I've seen you around San Francisco a few times but from a long distance, of course.
John L. Sullivan: Well, seein' me from a long distance is a smart idea, young fella.
