Plot Summary
In 1936, world heavyweight champ Joe Louis (Bernie Casey) goes 12 rounds before losing the title to German boxer Max Schmeling (Stephen Macht). After rigorously training for two years, the two are set for a rematch, with the rise of the Third Reich increasing the stakes dramatically. Billed as the fight of the century, most of the public views it as extension of the growing antagonism between America and Hitler's Germany, whereas the boxers themselves do not.
