Kim Deuk-gu is the outsider who challenges world lightweight boxing champion Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini for his title. Kim's rise from friendless gutter to the disciplined, self-respecting, utterly dedicated fighter, is revealed. As his career takes off, Kim finds himself increasingly divided between his devotion to his surrogate family at the gym - especially the trainer who becomes his mentor - his close ties with less driven or talented teammates, his commitment to his fiancée and, most importantly, his own ambition and sense of identity. Ultimately, his skill and overwhelming determination lead him to one of the most controversial fights of all time.
