Last fall I attended a special screening in Beverly Hills for the new film “After The Last Round,” a riveting documentary about the sport we love. The gala affair was a star-studded one with an audience filled with prizefighters and boxing icons including Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Ken Norton, Danny “Little Red” Lopez, Alex Ramos, Michael Bentt, Loreto Garza, Tony “The Tiger” Lopez along with Hall of Fame referees Joe Cortez, Richard Steele and Jack Reiss, among many others as you’ll see in some photos from the first L.A. premiere.

Now boxing aficionados can purchase this DVD for a donations of just 15.00 (completely tax deductable). The filmmaker has generously donated the DVDs to the nonprofit to raise funds for the organization.

If you enjoy watching the “sweet science,” I encourage you to donate to the RBF and take a look at the docu-film too. Trust me, once you watch the movie you will gain new respect for all fighters who dare climb up the steps to go toe to toe against their adversaries in the ring.
