Cinderella Man (2005)

Cinderella Man is about a burnout and injury-prone boxer who finally won (I'm not sure about the weight class) the championship belt after years of poverty and dissapointment. 

Russel Crowe plays the lead character James Braddock. Braddock was a top boxer at the start of the movie, until injuries and later on the Great Depression removed him from the driver seat of life. From riches to rags, he worked at the docks barely making enough for food for a wife and three children.
