Stallone teamed up with the DAZN streaming service for a series of documentaries focused on some of boxing’s most memorable fights.
The first project was the launch of a feature documentary called One Night: Joshua vs. Ruiz.
“My Hollywood script came to life that historic June night when unknown boxer Andy Ruiz achieved a victory that shocked the world” says Stallone. “It was the real life Rocky and the perfect story to kick off our partnership with DAZN,”
“There is nothing like the world of Boxing…the drama, the humanity, the agony, and the ecstasy. This sport reveals the souls of these courageous warriors like no other sport can so it’s a privilege to be very involved with DAZN and their revolutionary programming.”
“What is so exciting about our partnership with DAZN” says Kourosh Ta of Balboa Productions, “is that it enables us to collaborate with smart, like-minded creatives and share these amazing stories with their dedicated viewers; and our first project together, One Night, is the perfect story to help fulfill Balboa’s mission of giving a voice to all underdogs.”
