Watch an exclusive clip of Mickey Rourke in the documentary THE GOOD SON: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF RAY "BOOM BOOM" MANCINI!!
Hey Yo, Draven here.
There has never been a better time for sports documentaries, with ESPN’s excellent 30 FOR 30 series, and the Academy Award-winner for Best Documentary in 2011, UNDEFEATED. Sports and films have always been a natural fit and they are really catching fire in the documentary world.
We now have a documentary on one of the most interesting boxers of the late 20th Century in Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini. It is titled THE GOOD SON: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF RAY “BOOM BOOM” MANCINI and is available VOD right now and will be in limited theaters this Friday, August 9th. AICN has an exclusive clip of Mickey Rourke talking about his experiences watching Mancini box:
Ray ""Boom Boom" Mancini was once the most famous sports figure in America, a man who captivated the public with his remarkable personal tale. But on November 13, 1982, when he took the life of boxer Duk Koo Kim in the ring, the lives of two families and the sport of boxing changed forever. Mickey Rourke, Ed O'Neill, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Ray Mancini himself give touching first-hand accounts in this story about legacy, fatherhood and forgiveness.
