When it comes to boxing greats, we might think first of the cultural legacy of Muhammad Ali, the power of Mike Tyson or the money earned by Floyd Mayweather. But there’s no story quite like that of Vinny Pazienza. 

Nicknamed “The Pazmanian Devil,” the five-time champion was the ultimate comeback kid in the ring, dedicating his life to the sport and coming back against all the odds to secure victory after victory. 

But in 1991, a car accident sent the Rhode Island slugger to the hospital with a broken neck and the threat of never walking again, let anyone any chance of getting back in the ring.

Bleed For This follows “Whiplash” star Miles Teller as Pazienza, traversing the miracle of a journey that brought the top athlete from the peak of his career to an unbelievable tragedy, and back again. If there’s any championship belt dealt out that’s more deserving, it belongs to this man. Just watch the trailer above.

Bleed For This, starring Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, and Cieran Hinds, opens November 23rd.
