The story of James Braddock, a supposedly washed-up boxer who came back to become a champion and an inspiration in the 1930s.
Ben Affleck,Matt Damon, Clive Owen, Billy Bob Thornton and Mark Wahlberg were all considered for the role of Jimmy Braddock. Mark Wahlberg would eventually go on to star as "Irish Micky Ward" in "The Fighter" years later.
Attaboy! Keep him busy!
Braddock, Gould and the radio announcer all refer to the Madison Square Garden Bowl as "The Garden," but that was a nickname reserved for Madison Square Garden itself. The Bowl wasn't even in Manhattan -- it was in Queens -- and it was an outdoor arena.
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)
