Schmeling's heavyweight championship bouts with Joe Louis in the late 1930s were great fights, but they were also political events--Louis, an American black, versus the German Schmeling, a representative of Hitler's master race. At 92, Schmeling may be the last living person to have conversed with Franklin Roosevelt, Hitler, Pope Pious XII, and Marlene Dietrich. It's all here, in this detailed account of the boxer's life through the end of World War II. Perhaps the most interesting part of the story is the way time has altered the boxer's point of view. When he lost the second Louis fight, he thought it was the most devastating event of his life. But now he realizes that, had he won that fight, he would have become the paramount symbol of Hitler's Third Reich. Though he was a patriot, Schmeling could not reconcile himself to Hitler's racial and religious persecution. This is a fascinating, humble autobiography, of interest as much for the times in which the subject lived--and the people he knew-as for the subject himself

Knock out by Hans H Zerlett( Visual )

"Boxing champion Michele Aboro grew up in South London, where life for a girl was never easy, let alone for a mixed-race lesbian girl. Thanks to her tenacious spirit and an uncanny talent for combat sports, she put her difficult past behind her and managed to sign a contract with the biggest boxing promoter in Europe. She won all 21 fights, 18 of them with a knockout--an exceptional achievement in women's boxing. But despite her spectacular record in the ring, her career came to a sudden halt when her promoter breaks her contract under the belief that she was not 'promotable.' Refusing to vamp up her image and pose naked in magazines, this undefeated world champion was abandoned by an industry more interested in selling sex than sport. [The film] interweaves Aboro's personal story with interviews with boxers whose wild success strikes a painful contrast with Aboro's struggles. Searching for logic behind Aboro's case, this poignant documentary captures a universal story of fighting for one's identity and offers a probing look at the intersection of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and the increased commercialization of women's sports"--Www.wmm.com
