I can't believe no one's said George Foreman yet.

But on the other hand, even casual boxing fans probably know everything there is to know about George's life. A movie might just be overkill.

there must be a biopic done on Jack Johnson. The shit that he went through at the turn of the century must be seen by everyone.

If i'm not mistaken, there is a film based (maybe loosely?)on his life. Quite a remarkable saga.

The Great White Hope.

I think his name is Jack Jefferson in the movie and he's played by James Earl Jones.

I would seriously love that. Hell I'd write a biography about both of those tough mofos is I could interview them,

I wouldn't mind seeing a movie on George Chuvalo.

Mickey Rourke in his younger years would've been perfect for the part.. you know.. minus the plastic surgery.

Andrew Golota. Would love to get inside that head, especially with the legal problems in his past as well as the fights he's lost.
