In 1934, Jim Braddock was down and out. His boxing career blighted by broken hands, the New Yorker of English parentage had lost most of his previous twenty-one bouts and been forced to quit. Then came a visit from his old manager, asking if he wanted one more fight. Desperate for money, Braddock had no choice. Four wins later, he was the heavyweight champion of the world. His story captivated the nation in the way the racehorse Seabiscuit's would a few years later. Braddock's rags-to-riches success led Damon Runyon to call him 'the Cinderella Man'.
