Counterpunch – A Quick Capsule Review

Counterpunch – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Counterpunch takes an interesting look at three boxers at different stages in their career – the pro, the Olympic hopeful and the up-and-comer set against the background of a sport whose popularity is on the slide.  It’s an intimate portrayal for sure that, excuse the expression, pulls few punches.  It’s a really interesting documentary and is backed up with opinions from some serious legends such as Sugar Ray , De La Hoya and more.  It’s one flaw is the lack of acknowledgement of MMA as a legit contender to boxing. This aside if you like combat sports this is a must.

Best Bit: It’s a Great Story
