    What is your favorite movie where the main subject is boxing or a boxers life? My list

    1. Cinderella Man (one of my favorite movies ever)
    2. Rocky 1 or 2 tossup
    3. Rocky 4
    4. Raging Bull
    5. The Boxer (Daniel Day lewis)

    I also really liked The Fighter with Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg. and obviously Ali was good.. I have yet to see Creed though I heard it was great.

    Cinderella Man was a superb movie. But I will give Rocky the edge.

    The Fighter, excellent movie, definitely my fav.

    Actually not a huge fan of the rocky movies but appreciate them for what they did for boxing.

    Cinderella man is top tier also.

    I'm probably in the minority here but I watched half of Creed and stopped watching, albeit it was late and I was buzzed and tired. Just found the main character to be obnoxious and not relatable with a constant chip on his shoulder for no reason.
    My favorites are cinderella man, the fighter, million dollar baby and rocky III.

    All excellent. The in ring action in Ali vs Foreman is the best IMO.

    Yes, somehow I liked this Rocky the most.

    I forgot to include Gladiator among my top 5.
