Boxing-match between Floyd Patterson and Ingemar Johansson

A boxing movie.

The East Side Kids discover that one of their own, Danny, is torn between staying and school and becoming a boxer, and is getting mixed up with gangsters.

Based (loosely) on the life of Joe Louis. Except that Louis never lost a professional fight (until after this movie was made, at least). Head of the Production Code office Joseph Breen warned that the film might not get played in the South because it depicted a black man (Joe Louis) defeating several white men in boxing matches.

A boxer is killed in the ring by poison.

From IMDb: Leonard Nimoy is "Kid" Monk Baroni, the leader of a street gang who becomes a professional boxer to escape his life in "Little Italy" New York. Also Starring: Richard Rober, Bruce Cabot, Allene Roberts, and Mona Knox

Taken from IMDB: A third-rate boxer who loses most of his fights suddenly finds himself knocking out almost every one of his opponents. His sleazy manager spreads the word that the fighter has "the evil eye" and casts a spell on the men he's fighting. A female reporter sets out to find the truth.

After the champion middle-weight boxer is knocked out in a scuffle with milkman Harold Lloyd, Harold gets the chance to fight the champ in the ring. Adolphe Menjou and William Gargan also appear.
