This is a little different, as there are a lot of "combat sports" movies, and I feel like compiling the entire Rocky Anthology will probably make this a lopsided win, so if you vote for Rocky, please write below WHICH Rocky movie you voted for and why.

Eliminated:

(True Story)The Fighter, Cinderella Man, Ali, The Hurricane, Raging Bull, When we were Kings 

(Not a sports movie) Million Dollar Baby-Pop Culture about the ethical ramifications of euthanasia

(Not a good movie) Real Steel, Fighting,

The Options:


Bloodsport

Rocky anthology. Should be a clean sweep (even with the abomination that is Rocky V).

Also - no Karate Kid anthology? Might be the only contender in this genre. (Edit - I can't read words good).

This one has some great options, but Rocky is the 8,000 lb behemoth in the room.

Don't sell it so short. You're not doing it the justice it deserves.

Side note on Karate Kid v Rocky:

If we'd include the 10 episode show "Cobra Kai" on YouTube, I'd probably consider Karate Kid ahead of the Rocky/Creed anthology. This being said, Creed II looks like it'll catapult the R/C anthology over Karate Kid/Cobra Kai.

Yeah, if I eliminated Rocky, I think that the results would be a little more interesting, because the race for 2nd would be extremely close. I love Warrior, The Wrestler was solid, The Karate Kid is a bit of a classic (not my favorite, but whatever), and Kickboxer/Bloodsport are both fun guilty pleasure movies.

I'm more excited about Creed 2 than I care to admit.

In 2nd, I'd probably go with Warrior - Tom Hardy was such a got damm beast in that movie.

Check that, 3rd. I'm including Cobra Kai in the Karate Kid anthology.

If they could incorporate My Cousin Vinny into The Karate Kid somehow, it would be the GOAT simply for Marisa Tomei. Just bring it all together.

Warrior is so good that my wife has sat with me through it at least 3 times. Tom Hardy played that role as well as I've seen anyone play a character, period.

That said, she's also enjoyed sitting through the entire Rocky Anthology with me, aside from Rocky V, which I refuse to watch altogether, except for the Street Fight at the end, which is totally fantastic, despite the putrid movie.
