This sports documentary recalls in rich detail how Steve “The Celtic Warrior” Collins dethroned Chris “Simply The Best” Eubank following weeks of lively engagements and press conferences between the two. As well as the key parties involved it also features Barry Hearne, Noel C. Duggan, Tony Quinn and journalist Paul Howard. Eubank, forever the showman, is funny and engaging, recognizing Collins for his win. For all its humor, the film addresses the darker elements of boxing. How Steve Collins was given his huge opportunity after Belfast fighter Ray Close had to stand down when a routine scan showed lesions on his brain. And Eubank’s career had been touched by controversy, including the life-changing injuries sustained by Michael Watson in their fight just four years earlier.
