Boxing is often referred to as “The sweet science”, so we decided to put on some lab coats and break down a few films around this topic. The main film that is reviewed on this episode is the new biopic about Roberto Duran entitled: “Hands of Stone”. The film stars Robert DeNiro, Edgar Ramirez, and Ana de Armas, and tells the tale of the amazing, and tumultuous life of the former world champion boxer; from his humble roots in Panama, and then rising to be a part of some of the biggest televised fights of that generation.
