Lewis had a remarkable boxing career and majority of his big highlight moments and fights are documented in this film. Interviews with legends of the sport that talk about him with reverence and explain what made him remarkable is quite compelling to watch.
Aside from his triumphs and some letdowns in the ring, the movie showcases his personal life. From his childhood to retirement. It casts a wide scope of his life into the story. I liked that aspect of the film. It’s not just about boxing, it’s more about the man that is Lennox Lewis.
I liked the fact that Lewis speaks in the doc. The clips of him from present time and the work he does in the community and with kids is inspiring to see. The highlight clips of his classic fights and promos got me hyped up. This is a fulfilling documentary of one of the more underrated athletes of all-time.
