Anyone happen to catch this the other night? It's a documentary dealing with Luis Resto and his fight with Billy Collins Jr and the aftermath and all. Definitely worth checking out if you didn't see it.

I was going to make a thread about this as well

It was a really great documentary. I was bored out of my mind a few days ago, and just began to see this. Its a real interesting story as well, id recommend anyone to watch this.

Spoilers ahead













I knew Resto was lying at first, he kept denying he didnt know anything at all basically, but every boxer knows whats in their boxing gloves and what they take. Im really glad the way he came out and just confessed to everything, especially to the widow of Billy Collins, it must have been so hard for him to do that.

His trainer Panama Lewis seems like a real dick though. I believe he knows everything or close to everything.

Yea it was very good, I really enjoyed it.

Glad to see Resto finally admitted everything..it seems like he got a big burden off his back by admitting everything.

IMO, there is NO WAY Panama Lewis doesn't know what happened. Meeting with that drug dealer who bet on Resto..going into the bathroom with Resto's gloves... Of course I don't think he will ever admit it until maybe he's on his death bed.

Panama was a scum bag through and through. Everytime he promised Resto he'd take care of him as soon as he got some money made me sick. As he stands there with fingers he can't put together because he has so many rings on them. I was honestly hoping Resto smashed him when he tried to hug him in the end.

Panama Lewis is guilty, in my opinion. He knows the truth. The only reason why he isn't speaking is because he's reserving some hope of returning ringside.
