Can Anyone Identify this Film?

Post by 2nd trick op »

It's been over thirty years since I can remember seeing this film, but the memory came back to me the other night, so let's see if our readership can provide some particulars.

It's definitiely a 'B' movie, a boxing story made around the time The Harder They Fall (Bogart's last work) called the entire sport into question.

In one scene, the protagonist, a young Latino fighter, is setting up a garden-hose shower in his backyard when he draws a whistle blast and a friendly wave from the crew of a passing EsPee freight, drawn by a late-model cab-forward. This is the only time I'm aware of a cab-forward depicted on film in revenue service.

Anybody else remember this one?
