Script is based on the true story of legendary boxer Duran who rose from the slums of Panama to become one of the great boxers of his era. His rivalry with Sugar Ray Leonard is considered one of the fiercest in boxing history.

Barkin will play the wife of Duran’s trainer Ray Arcel, whom De Niro plays. Ramirez portrays Duran while Raymond plays Leonard.

Jakubowicz produces along with Jay Weisleder, Carlos Garcia de Paredes and Claudine Jakubowicz.
