Inspiration: Roberto Duran
Boxer Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez) rises from the slums of Panama in 1968 at the age of 16 with the help of legendary trainer and mentor Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) to become one of the great fighters of his time.
He battles his ring nemesis Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond), out-punching him to capture the 1980 WBC welterweight title but famously returning to his corner during another match later that year, claiming "no mas" (no more).
Throughout his career, which ended in 2002 when he retired at the age of 50, Roberto earned the nickname "Hands of Stone" as he won 103 matches out of 119.
