    After watching the Micki Ward movie trailer, I realized Christian Bale bares a minor resemblance to another fighter....

    Stallone obviously...

    Also Carl Weathers, Mr. T, and Dolph Lungren could also probably pull off boxers...

    In all seriousness, most of the actors I'm thinking off have already played fighters.

    Denzel Washington was great in Hurricane, Will Smith was excellent as Ali, Crow was pretty good as Braddock.

    Not many I could think of, but I'll come back to this thread

    Tarver played a boxer in Rocky.

    rourke was trained by freddie roach and supposedly they are still pretty good friends. after training deniro for raging bull, lamotta was qouted as saying he thought that deniro could compete at middleweight.

    While serving time in San Quentin State prison, he must have had an epiphany. He suddenly started training day in and day out to be a boxer while at the same time, attending 12-Step program meetings to get over his addictions. Trejo eventually won two separate divisions in the California Prison boxing championships and cured himself from his various drug addictions.
