James J. Braddock – The “Cinderella Man”

James Braddock was known for his spoiling, counterpunching style, powerful righthand, and his iron chin. He had lost several bouts due to chronic hand injuries and was forced to work on the docks and collect social assistance to feed his family during the Great Depression. He made a comeback, and in 1935 he fought Max Baer for the heavyweight title and won. For this unlikely feat he was given the nickname "Cinderella Man" by Damon Runyon.

During the fight, a dogged Braddock took a few heavy hits from the powerful younger Baer, but Braddock kept coming, wearing down Baer, who seemed perplexed by Braddock's ability to take a punch. In the end, the judges gave Braddock the title with a unanimous decision.

Russell Crowe portrayed James Braddock in the 2006 Hollywood feature, “The Cinderella Man.”
