Boxing Movies

Looking to pick up some boxing movies. Doesn't matter whether they are action, drama, comedies, etc. Here's what I got so far: Cinderella Man, Rocky films, Million Dollar Baby. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Yes, Raging Bull.
Champion
Ali
Snatch, kind of.
Hurricane
Snake Eyes might count.
Undisputed
Play It to the Bone
Part of Pulp Fiction?
The Ring. Oh, nevermind.
Night and the City

I wouldn't recommend all of these, but they were the first boxing movies to come to mind. For a more comprehensive list, hit up the IMDB. Search in plots for "boxing" and "boxer." You should get at least a few hundred hits for each.

Hard Times (1975) with Charles Bronson. Fantastic movie with Chuck as a bare knuckle boxer during the depression. He is such a bad ass in this movie, far more than any of his Death Wish movies.

"Diggstown" is one of the most enjoyably underrated movies of all time.

The Set-Up was the first one that came to mind for me. Mondo Kane suggested it. It's in WB's first Film Noir box.

On the Waterfront

Has the greatest dialogue about being a boxer.

I thoroughly enjoyed the women's professional boxing documentary "Shadow Boxers." Lucia Rijker (a fighter featured in the film) is also in "Million Dollar Baby" and the included MDB featurette "Born to Fight."
