Ever get caught surfing around television and all of a sudden a boxing movie is on one of the channels? 9 times out of 10 if it’s a good boxing movie and it’s a fight scene, I will generally leave it on. I mean how could you possibly turn off the channel when Rocky is about to knock out Apollo?
I just don’t think I’m capable of changing the channel during some of these types of scenes. Perhaps it pumps me up. Perhaps I have a fetish for sweaty men touching each other so much. I have no clue. I just know that I enjoy watching this stuff.
Here are some great boxing scenes from boxing movies that I could watch again and again
Rocky vs. Drago
Classic music here. And I love when Paulie is rubbing the bald head.
Cinderella Man – Now I know what I’m fighting for
When Braddock smiles after taking a ridiculous hit, it’s amazing to watch his opponent be completely dismantled mentally.
Brutal Scene in Raging Bull
This one’s tough to watch but man, what a powerful scene. He really takes a beating here. “You didn’t knock me down.”
The Ending to Rocky II
There’s also a little bit of Rocky III in there, which I love.
The Spanking Scene in Diggstown
Diggstown is such an underrated boxing movie. I’m a huge fan.
Last Scene in Gladiator
I couldn’t find it but the final fight with Brian Dennehy is pretty money. This video is the highlight montage but the last scene is in there.
Ali vs. Liston – Ali
This is the best fight scene of the film
