Trying to find out the name of a movie?

Asked by CallorFold (35points) August 31st, 2014

I saw a movie a number of years ago. I am not certain but I think the movie may have been made in the 60s or 70s.

It was about a boxer who was trained and then promoted as the next big thing, in order to get people to bet on him.

Your details are quite vague & you never said it was a comedy, but the following sounds plausible…

I’d guess Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962).

Another contender is The Harder They Fall (1956).

It’s certain to be on this list and/or this one.
