Description: After 17 years as a recognized and respected sports journalist in New York City, Eddie Willis finds himself out of a job. He's approached by a major fight promoter, Nick Benko, to act as a public relations man for his new heavyweight fighter Toro Moreno. After watching Toro in the ring, Eddie realizes Toro is nothing but a stiff who has no hope of succeeding. Benko offers him a sizable salary and an unlimited expense account and given his financial situation, he agrees. Benko's strategy to make money is simple: starting in California and moving east, they arrange a series of fights for Toro with stiffs and has-beens. All of the fights are rigged to build up his record and get him a fight with the heavyweight champion, Buddy Brannen, where they will make a sizeable profit at the gate. Along the way, one boxer gets killed in the ring and Eddie begins to have serious doubts about what he is doing.

It's Christmas every day on this site, with frequent updates now !
Thanks for "The harder they fall" and the meticulous way you prepare your uploads (very good quality image, screenshots, samples, many subtitles etc...)

Also thanks for the Hitckock series, it's great you provide english subtitles (very useful when english isn't your native language !)
