Liev Schreiber is outstanding as rough-edged, charismatic Chuck Wepner, the “Bayonne Bleeder” who redeemed himself in the ring opposite Muhammad Ali.
Hundreds gathered at the Garfield Park fieldhouse Tuesday night in honor of slain Chicago boxer Ed “Bad Boy” Brown, who was fatally shot on Saturday.
His daughter Kayla was a key reason Brown, 25, an undefeated, national junior welterweight boxer clearly headed to the big time didn’t leave Chicago.
Ed Brown’s co-manager Mike Cericola said the boxing ring is often “the scariest place” for people, but it was the “safest” for Brown.
If you were watching undefeated light heavyweight Mike Lee fight for the first time, it would be fair to wonder what all the fuss is about.
