These guys interviewed me for this documentary. Flew me out to Vegas to do the interview, too, so they are serious. I haven't seen it yet, though. I imagine it will be very good, because I think they were working pretty hard at it and are serious documentarians.

Sweet.

I am excited to see what new footage they dug up.

The obvious limiting constraint for this sort of doc is footage since only a bit exists but again, seeing all that they could find, remastering it to some degree, the old motion picture footage, all very interesting ... I look forward to seeing it ..

Same here.

This is the footage I have seen on Corbett.


Corbett can be seen for 27 minutes vs Fitz.


Toying with Corurtney.


Sparring with Kid McCCoy for world war 1 bonds.


And showing off some of his moves to Tunney.


Even as an old man, he was very quick and sudden with his movements.

A fake of a fake fight? Interesting that McCoy looks as big as Corbett.

> I know a few of you have had some issues explaining to voters how to "like" your video. I have provided an image below to help explain and possibly alleviate any confusion. To the left of the bottom of your film, there is a thumbs up button and a thumbs down button. Tell your fans to click on the thumbs up to vote for your film on YouTube. On the far right hand corner below your film, there is a green bar. Below that there will be a number of "likes". We are counting the number of likes your film gets on YouTube, not the amount of views. Dislikes will not hurt your score.
