Southpaw

If you're into boxing, then you probably know that there's a big fight heading into the ring this weekend with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao finally making good on the fight fans have wanted for years. But for those of us who only care about boxing when there's a compelling character with a story to be told in a motion picture, we have a new TV spot for Antoine Fuqua's forthcoming boxing drama Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal. In fact, this TV spot will actually air during the big fight this weekend, to hit the boxing audience at the perfect time. It's basically a condensed version of the trailer we've seen. Watch it!

Here's the first TV spot for Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw straight from YouTube:

I would have loved to see Eminem in this role, since his name was attached to this film for a couple of years.

Can't wait for this. Also, Mayweather by decision is my pick.
