14 Best Boxing Movies

14 Best Boxing Movies: "We here at AoM are unabashed fans of the sweet science. Its history and ethos make it a strong contender for being the manliest of sports. For boxing has always transcended the mere confines of the ring, becoming something more, something that approaches the heart of manliness itself. Since its introduction in ancient times, boxing has mirrored the struggle of every man who has ever gone toe to toe with an opponent, be it of flesh or the spirit. Boxing can be seen as a metaphor for every fight in a man’s life, those moments where it doesn’t come down to equipment or trick plays, but all that’s left when life is stripped down to the bare essentials: grit, determination, and heart."
