Abstract:

The Last Round tells a story that sounds vaguely familiar: a working-class boxer, second-generation immigrant family, living the big city, scraping together a meager boxing career. He achieves enough success to catch the interest of listening ears. Flash forward a few years, and, suddenly, the working-class hero boxer is aiming to fight the boisterous, tough-talking world heavyweight titleholder. . . and to the surprise of everyone, the absolute underdog comes out swinging, holding his own against the champion. The underdog loses the fight, but makes the champion earn it over a full 15-round tooth-and-nail battle. It has long been rumored that this fight, the Chuvalo vs. Ali fight, was the real-life inspiration for the movie Rocky.
