Johnny Tapia definitely needs a movie made about him, this guy had been 3 time world champion and also been declared dead like 5 times. Also if Holyfield manages to win another piece of the title, he needs a movie about him. Imagine showing him coming up in Atlanta, then the Olympics, then his dominant reign over the cruiserweight division. His epic trilogy with Bowe, regaining the title from Moorer, his notorious fights with Tyson. Then his decline, losing to Lewis being delcared unfit to box by New York Boxing Commission. The comeback, and finally his last title run. Good story right there.

How about a journeyman like Garing Lane or Ross Purrity?

Arturo Gatti's life would make an excellent movie. If there is ever a movie made about Oscar DLH's life it too would be great. Here is a link for info on the upcoming movie about the life of Micky Ward:
