His vow to win the championship for his father, the original “Boom Boom”, captivated the country. On the cusp of breakout celebrity, Ray fought Korean challenger Duk Koo Kim in an epic bout that left Kim in a fatal coma, and changed Mancini’s life and boxing itself. Now, 30 years later, Ray Mancini faces Kim’s fiancée and the son he never knew.
