Heart of a Champion: The Ray Mancini Story
The career of boxer Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini is the subject of this made-for-TV biopic. Doug McKeon plays Mancini, while Robert Blake co-stars as his father, Lenny Mancini. An excellent pugilist in his own right, Lenny's career is cut short by his World War II service. Son Ray carries on the tradition into the 1980s, battling his way towards the WBA crown.
