This would be a look at the uglier side of boxing and how two people, a boxer and his trainer, ended the career of an up and coming fighter. It is a documentary called "Assault In The Ring". It showcases the fight between Louis Resto and Billy Collins where Panama Lewis, Resto's trainer, removed much of the padding in the gloves and tampered with his wraps and the terrible beating young Collins took in that fight.
