Image Quotes about Boxing




Russell Crowe  - I never saw Jim as a man who really lived for boxing at all. To me, the story was interesting because of his change of fortune. I thought, 'This is a great story, because it's true. You couldn't make it up.' Braddock had been a very responsible young man when he was doing well as a boxer. He'd saved his money, he hadn't wasted it. He hadn't lived outside his means. He did the thing everybody said to do at the time, which was to invest his money in the stock market. And in October 1929, he lost 85 per cent of his total net worth and was brought to the brink of bankruptcy. Suffice it to say, things turned bad.
