Based on the true story of six-time world champion boxer Emile Griffith, Man in the Ring
charts Emile’s humble beginnings in the U.S. Virgin Islands to his infamous match against his archrival Benny “Kid” Paret. When Benny challenges Emile's sexual identity, Griffith responds in the ring and leaves a mark that lingers long after their legendary encounter. Man in the Ring
is a story of violence, love, and life under the public eye—and one man’s fight to get the world back in his corner.
