Character Bio: Swank’s Maggie Fitzgerald is a woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. But what she wants more than anything is to box. With raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will, she isn’t a prodigy–just a common woman with an uncommon drive to be the best. Maggie’s gotten herself this far but she needs someone to believe in her, someone like trainer Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood). Even though she has a lot of heart and courage she will face a battle that will demand more than she has ever had to give.
