- He's not being handled right.

- You get me coming in all right?

You want me to do that again?

Get out of the ring, O'Keefe.

Dicky's the trainer.

- I'm doing a favor, Alice.

- I will show you over here

these scrapbooks

I've been collecting for years.

Micky used to follow

his big brother everywhere.

Taught ya everything, didn't he, honey?

In '78, we got the offer

to fight Sugar Ray Leonard.

Oh, my God, it was...

Have you seen that video?

Oh, you're from HBO.

You gotta see it again. Come on.

Art, Art, where's the video at?

Tonight, my son is gonna surprise

everybody and beat Sugar Ray Leonard.

Believe me, I know it.

Sugar Ray might have

some trouble tonight.

That's a good possibility.

He comes in here against a good boxer,

a young man who can punch,

and I would like to say at this time

that physically

they're just about equal.

Leonard is down.

Let's see if that's a knockdown.

This is unbelievable.

Eklund just walked over him!

Nobody seems

to know what's happening!

Dicky did it.

Yeah. Tricky Dicky did it.

- Dicky did it.

- Weren't you supposed to be

training Micky right now?

- No, it ain't till 9:00.

- Dicky, it's fucking 11:45!

- It's 11:
45, Dick.

- What?!

Where'd you fuckin'

park the car, Boo Boo?!

I didn't park it. You did.

- I didn't park it.

- Check your pockets for the keys.

- You got the keys, yeah?

- I didn't park it, man.

- Down there? I don't know.

- Check your pockets, all right?

- You're fuckin' mental.

- F*ck it!

I'll run. I need the fuckin' roadwork.

- Roadwork? Are you crazy?

- He's a great runner.




- Hey, Dicky.

- Better late than never.

Oh, look! Detective's on the scene.

Gonna get to the bottom of this.

- Figure this one out, huh?

- Dick, you're an asshole.

Hold it, hold it.
