Writer and critic Danny Leigh explores the elemental drama of the boxing movie, examining how each generation's fight films have reflected their times and been used to address powerful themes such as redemption, race and corruption. He asks why film-makers from Stanley Kubrick to Martin Scorsese have depicted tales of the ring, and interviews former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, Rocky director John G Avildsen and Thelma Schoonmaker, editor of Raging Bull
