Summary, etc.:
Frank Sinatra fawned over him. Warren Zevon wrote a tribute song about him. Sylvester Stallone produced his life story as a Movie of the Week. In the 1980s, Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini wasn't merely the lightweight champ. An adoring public considered him a national hero, the real Rocky. From the mobbed-up steel city of Youngstown, Ohio, Mancini was cast as the savior of a sport: a righteous kid in a corrupt game, fighting for those left behind in busted-out mill towns across America. But it all came apart November 13, 1982, in a brutal battle at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Mancini's obscure Korean challenger, Duk Koo Kim, went down in the 14th round and never regained consciousness. Now, thirty years after that bout, the story's full dimensions are finally uncovered. THE GOOD SON is an intimate history, a saga of fathers and fighters, loss and redemption and finally, forgiveness.
