JON VOIGHT
DENZEL WASHINGTON
DANIEL DAY LEWIS
SILVESTER STALLONE
ROBERT DENIRO
VING RAMES
WESTLY SNIPES
KIRK DOUGLASS
ANTONIO TARVER :laugh:
CARL WEATHERS
PAUL NEWMAN

My favorite barn none, from beginning to end the great ROBERT DENIRO a masterpiece of a performance not only did he played a boxer but he portraid the life of a very flawed athlete. Took the oscar

my favorite scene involving boxing is just a scene where they talk about it. That's right, the barbershop scene in "Coming to America!" If you have seen anything funnier than that you gotta let me know
