SYNOPSIS The day before the fight for the boxing championship title in 1962 between Afro-Caribbeans Benny Kid Paret and Emile Griffith – the first world boxing champion to come out as bisexual –, at the weigh-in, Cuban Paret insulted Griffith many times concerning his sexual orientation, who got into the boxing ring unsettled and threw a series of punches at Paret, leading him to coma. Paret died ten days later, and the tragic event haunted the champion til the end of his days. World premiere.
