The movie did an injustice to Baer.It did so for dramatic effect, to make a better movie so to speak I would not give to much credit to a Baer site, it would obviously discredit Braddock. We have been down the movie road before and this was a good boxing movie,but the Raging Bull is my favorite.
On the contrary, just because I chose to create a website about Max Baer, doesn't mean I had an ax to grind against Jim Braddock. I admire Jim Braddock, I just have a problem with a movie that portrays Max Baer so fictionally.

I spent 6 months researching Max Baer and all his bouts before ever making my website live. I poured through every available newspaper, magazine and book I could locate.

If you like I can send you several .pdf files of actual newspaper columns by reputable sports editors of the day that describe the Baer-Braddock fight as worse than just "plodding" or "dull and uninspired". I was being kind with the moderate words I used.

I'm thrilled you enjoyed my site. I worked very hard to ensure absolute accuracy before I brought the site live.

I'll make the same offer to you as I did to the other gentleman. If you like I can send you several .pdf files of actual newspaper columns by reputable sports editors of the day that describe the Baer-Braddock fight.

Regards,
Cat
