The longest arms ever for a boxer.

Surprisingly, he wasn't quite as 'muscular' as he looked when in the ring.

I spoke with director Mike Parkhurst and lead actor Charles Napier at length about their time working with Sonny on this film. Both told me that he had been dissipating for quite a while at this point. A big time drinker and who knows what else, but definitely not keeping his once muscular frame in shape.
