A good sport series, not more.
The concept is pretty good because it describe the rough world of boxing in general. It is not the life of only one main person. It involves many different boxers, coaches, boxer's wives, managers and the administration of the sport. It is a sport series that resembles a lot to the "Lance et Compte" one, which tell us in that case about the world of hockey. In 7e round, none of the opponent is the typical "bad guy" that needs to be knocked down and this aspect makes the whole thing pretty realistic. Although most of the ingredients are there for a good drama, the public wants to see more of the sports itself. The first episode brings us a big fight, but the rest of them are very timid in this area. Sometimes fights that could've been amazing are just skipped or cut to a small instant. I liked the idea of informing us of the rough world behind every fight, but at one point it is too much talking and not enough fighting. I would be very surprise that viewers of this series would not be fans of boxing, so let's show them what they want. I think this series is good, but just good, that's why I rate it 7.
