And the No. 1 sports story yet to be told is none other than that of boxer Billy Miske.
Known as the Saint Paul Thunderbolt, Miske was a successful light-heavyweight and heavyweight fighter in the 1920s whose career was cut short due to Bright's Disease, a deadly kidney disorder.
Miske's family struggled financially following his retirement, and though doctors only gave him a few months to live, he decided to fight once more in order to earn enough money to buy Christmas presents for his children.
Despite being too sick to train, Miske stepped into the ring for the final time on November 7th, 1923 and amazingly knocked out his opponent Bill Brennan in the fourth round.
Billy Miske died less that two months later from kidney failure.
A relatively unknown story, Billy Miske's final fight lives on as one of the most inspiring victories in sports history.
It deserves to be told to a wider audience, and there is no better way than to get it in Hollywood's hands.
