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.
