Jones as Gordon Bob: Cora's ex-love interest from college and the principal at her school. He still has feelings for her but can't get her to leave Reggie for him.
Smith as Reggie Brooks: It was an opportunity that might never have come had the fighter not been where he was, when he was. IBF super bantamweight champion Lehlohonolo Ledwaba was scheduled to defend his title in the co-main event of Oscar De La Hoya's challenge of junior middleweight strap holder Javier Castillejo, but when Ledwaba's original opponent, Enrique Sanchez, pulled out, the South African needed a new dance partner.
Everything worked out perfectly," Roach said. But we hit it off in the gym, and so he stayed, and then the opportunity came up. Freddie Roach, right, knew how to get the most out of a sometimes hard-headed Mickey Rourke. But at the time, he was regarded as a dangerous champion and a potential star in the making. He was a killer. I was looking at the board in Vegas and seeing what the line was. Ledwaba was such a big favorite, they weren't taking any action on the fight.
Pacquiao and Roach had won their first world title together, and it had happened almost in the blink of an eye: One moment, they did not know each other, the next they were on top of the world.
But sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes an unexpected encounter can send a person's life in an unanticipated direction. Roach knows that better than most. After all, it had happened to him once before, 10 years earlier. But for all the natural flair he displayed, acting had never truly been in Rourke's soul, and whatever satisfaction he had derived from it now had long since faded. I wasn't enjoying it anymore. Casting about for some kind of anchor in his life, Rourke turned to an earlier love.
Freddie Roach took a chance with an unknown fighter in Manny Pacquiao. I was at school, and the teacher was writing on the blackboard and it looked like Chinese; I looked over at the kid next to me and I couldn't remember his name.
I felt sick to my stomach," he said. Two years later, another concussion prompted a medical admonition to refrain from contact for at least six months. So, Rourke said, "I took a year off. But I always stayed in the gym. Rourke had befriended Gary Stretch, a British middleweight who, following the opposite career path to Rourke, was looking to gain a toehold in the movie business. One evening, the Englishman introduced the actor to an up-and-coming trainer named Freddie Roach.
Working under the tutelage of his mentor, the legendary Eddie Futch, Roach already had a couple of world champions -- Virgil Hill and Marlon Starling -- under his belt. He was happy in Las Vegas, learning his trade and developing a reputation, and would not normally have uprooted to the City of Angels to train a year-old with no professional experience.

But this year-old was different. Or, if I didn't have my right hand up high enough, Freddie had a damn good left hook himself, and he'd sock me right me on the chin.
I respected that, you know?
