Based on the incredible true story, Miles Teller stars as boxer, Vinny Pazienza, in Bleed For This.
Vinny Pazienza was a former American boxer who held world titles in three different weight categories, who int the peak of his career suffered a near-fatal car accident.
The film shares his story of how he received the devastating news following his accident that he would never be able to walk again. But Vinny refused to accept that was the end after spending months in a neck brace. He adopted a mind over matter ethos and despite doctors’ orders, he returned back to the gym. With the support of trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), “The Pazmanian Devil” made a triumphant return to the ring just over a year later.
Bleed For This comes out in cinemas on 2nd December 2016.
