A Step Back (from The New York Times)
The fight was made into a 2002 movie called Champion in Korea, starring You, Oh-Sung and directed by Kwak, Kyung-taek (Friend). The movie only covers Kim’s story, so I was rather startled and saddened to find out in this article that the fight also effectively spelled the end of Mancini’s career in boxing. It’s riveting stuff, and ends on a moving note after the detailed and at times painful description of the tragic bout. Well worth clicking through the 8 pages of text.
