Outsider (Chuck) est un film dramatique américain réalisé par Philippe Falardeau, sorti en 2016. Il s'agit d'un film biographique sur le boxeur poids lourd Chuck Wepner, célèbre pour avoir affronté le champion de la même catégorie Mohamed Ali en 1975 et pour avoir inspiré le personnage de Rocky Balboa.

Synopsis

En 1975, le boxeur poids lourd Chuck Wepner affronte sur le ring le champion de la même catégorie, Mohamed Ali. Alors que tout le monde pense qu'il va se ridiculiser, Chuck tient quasiment les 15 rounds. Il gagne le respect du public et devient une célébrité. D'autant plus que son histoire a inspiré un jeune acteur alors inconnu, Sylvester Stallone, qui écrit alors le scénario d'un futur film à succès, Rocky. Chuck, le fêtard, va cependant tomber dans une spirale qui l'éloigne de sa femme Phyl et de sa fille Kimberley.

In 1890s San Francisco, boxing is illegal. James J. Corbett (Errol Flynn), a brash young bank teller, attends a match with his friend Walter Lowrie (Jack Carson). When a police raid nets Judge Geary, a member of the board of directors of Corbett's bank, Corbett's fast talking gets his superior out of trouble. The judge is looking to improve the image of boxing by recruiting men from more respectable backgrounds and having them fight under the Marquess of Queensberry rules. He has even imported British coach Harry Watson (Rhys Williams) to evaluate prospects. Watson finds that Corbett, raised in a combative Irish immigrant family headed by Pat Corbett (Alan Hale), has excellent fighting skills; Geary likes his protégé's seemingly-polished manner.

Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) is an American welterweight boxer from Lowell, Massachusetts. Managed by his mother, Alice Ward (Melissa Leo), and trained by his older half-brother, Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale), Micky has not had a particularly successful career: He's become a "stepping stone" for other boxers to defeat on their way up. Complicating matters, Dicky, a former boxer whose peak of success was going the distance with Sugar Ray Leonard in 1978 (before Leonard became a world champion), has fallen apart since then, becoming addicted to crack cocaine. He is now being filmed for an HBO documentary he believes to be about his "comeback".

Victor "Young" Perez tells the astonishing, harrowing and poignant story of a Tunisian Jewish boxer, who became the World Flyweight Champion in 1931 and 1932. Perez started training as a boxer at age 14 along with his older brother Benjamin "Kid" Perez Perez and rose to great fame thanks to the help and guidance of Leon Bellier. Moreover he had a love affair with French-Italian actress Mireille Balin. The 5'1", 110-pound Perez won the International Boxing Union's version of the World Flyweight crown by a 2nd-round knockout of US-American champion Frankie Genaro, subsequently becoming the youngest world champion in boxing history! Perez got arrested in Paris on September 21, 1943 and was detained in the Drancy internment camp France, before being transported to Auschwitz where he was assigned to the Monowitz to serve as a slave laborer. Victor Perez arrived at Auschwitz on October 10, 1943, as part of "Transport 60" a group of 1,000. He was held in AuschwitzIII/Monowitz. Whilst there he was forced to fight in boxing matches for the amusement of the SS command. By 1945 Victor had survived 140 bouts in 15 months. Perez was one of the prisoners on the death march that left the camp on January 18, 1945.
