    I saw it.

    It was pretty good. Depends on your age and if you were/are a boxing fan.

    I grew up in a household and family of boxing fans. So for me, the Duran vs. Leonard fight was sorta 'old hat.' It was one of those historic fights and situations that when I was a kid I had heard and read just about everything about it. However, if you like boxing and weren't around for it then you will find this a very interesting documentary.

    I doubt I will watch the movie. Had this been a movie done in the 70's or 80's, they would have gotten a really good actor, even if it was an unknown actor, and got him to play the part of Leonard. Now it's all about trying to get a big name, even if they can't act. So unless Usher pulls off a performance of his life, I'm not really interested.

    I remember watching their fights as a kid. Hagler was another great fighter from that era.
