In real life, boxing is a sport full of emotion that highlights both the very best and very worst of human nature. It gives fans the chance to cheer on the underdog and hate the villain at the same time. Even in reality, boxing often takes on the characteristics of a great story and lends itself well to all sorts of fictional portrayals.
