On the Ropes (1999)
Description: Three Bed-Stuy boxers -Tyrene Manson, Noel Santiago, and George Walton - train for the Golden Gloves Tournament at the Bed-Stuy Boxing Center, the neighborhood gym which produced boxing stars Riddick Bowe and Mark Breland. Tyrene's growing reputation in women's boxing is stymied by her arrest on drug charges; Noel's talented, but lacks commitment; George (last year's Golden Gloves winner) has the greatest chance of success. But will he stick with Harry Keitt, the trainer who brought him along these past years, or sign with the slick promoters now circling the ring like so many vultures?
