I saw Louis the night

that he beat Braddock...

won the title. 1937.

Louis hits him

with a left and a right!

And Braddock is down!

Straight right hand to the jaw.

Christ, they could've

counted to fifty.

He was the best heavyweight...

that ever fought

under the modern rules.

No discussion, the best.

Then the f***ing government

chased him about taxes.

F***ing IRS,

f***ing bureaucrat a**holes.

F*** it.

in the west corner,

weighing in at 230 pounds...

wearing the green trunks

with the gold trim...

he's undefeated with

eight wins and no losses.


the State Prison at Loda...

the great white hope,

Vern Van Zant!

# Let me tell you boys

who you're messing with #

Now in the east corner...

he's also undefeated

and defending champion...

with a record of

weighing in at 191 pounds...

wearing the burgundy trunks

with the black trim...

Sweetwater's own,

Monroe Hutchen!

All right now, sh*t birds,

y'all both know the rules.

I want a nice, clean fight,

nothing below the belt.

You understand me? Let's box.

Now remember,

brother convicts...

if you learned how to act...

they wouldn't have to fight

inside of a cage.

And be on your

best behavior, too...

'cause we don't want

no incidents, all right?

Now, let's see what

the pride of Loda...

has to offer against

the great Monroe.

Give Hitler's cousin

his lunch, baby.

It's all you, baby!

It's all you!

Yeah! Come on now!

Come back

from the rail-get back,

And there go the bell.

Here we go.

Monroe comes out

and peppers him...

with a nice left hand,

And another left hand,


just feeling him out...

popping him with

a little left hand,

He going to shine that

bald head up, for sure,

Move your feet!

Oh, yeah, that's right!

Yeah! Yeah!

Beat the teeth out of

his mouth, Monroe!

Come on, man!

A left

and a right by Monroe!

This guy hasn't

tagged Monroe yet,

How in the hell

could you be 6-6, 280...

and look wobbly already? Ooh!

He's down! He's down!

He's already down!

Vern Van Zant is down!

We're not even halfway

through the first round...

and he's already down!

Excuse me, sir,

we just got some big news.

The word is, the Iceman's

day of arrival is tomorrow.

E.T.A., 2 p. m.

Now, Vern Van Zant

said he got those...

brand-new tattoos

just for this occasion.

Well, Vern, don't look like...

the parrys gonna last

too long for you.

This guy is a bum-

big, uncoordinated motherf***er.


Look at me! You OK? Box!

Ah, here we go again!

Monroe's on the hunt.

Vern, swinging and a-missing,

Ooh! And another left,

right to the midsection,

Left and right

uppercuts to the head!

Right to the head!

Right to the stomach,

This guy's just

a- swinging and a-missing!

Hits him with

a left and a right!

Monroe's just

tearing his ass up,

Right in the face!

Right to the head!

Left to the midsection!

Right to the head!

Another left and a right!

Oh, my God,

he shined his head up!

I told you,

he's shinin' it up!

One more time for Monroe,

Knockout! Knockout!

One round, motherf***er!

That's it! That's it!

It's done! This fight is over!

Monroe wins again!

Spit it.

Yeah, but I got a little

announcement for you.

Got a little

announcement for you.

Little news bulletin.

Y'all been wondering

when that day is coming.

Well, that day is tomorrow.

He's coming to Sweetwater.

The so-called undisputed...

heavyweight champion

of the world...

George "Iceman" Chambers!

What do you say to that,

Monroe? You ready?

OK, here we go. Tape rolling.

Former world

heavyweight champion...

George "Iceman" Chambers...

now you'll be moving

to a new home...

going to live with

murderers and thieves...

in California's newly-built...

Sweetwater Prison

in the Mojave Desert.

How's all this going for you?

I'll be OK.

I got a bad break.

I just gotta

play this thing out.

Your lawyers have filed

all the expected appeals...

but realistically, what do

you think of your chances...

of getting out

before serving...

the full sentence

of 6 to 8 years?
