Russian movie I like, "Rock Head" ("Kamennaya Bashka")


About a boxer (played by real life super heavyweight champ Nikolai Valuev, and possibly partially based on his own biography, according to some sources; he is also from a crime infested hood in St. Petersburg, just as where this is set), who goes against his promoter (and ruthless mobster), to defend a girl he fell in love with,whom that guy is forcing into prostitution...

Really shows the whole filthy, corrupt, criminal underworld of boxing in Russia...
His head always looked like a VW Beetle to me! Shape AND size!

And don't forget the original. Here Comes Mister Jordan.
I've seen it, but didn't like it quite as much. I don't remember anything bad about it ... it just wasn't memorable.

Can M*A*S*H be considered a sports movie, with the game at the end?
