I Am Durán: Roberto Durán Reflects On Life and Boxing Career [Exclusive Interview]

For years, Roberto Durán earned his nickname as Hands of Stone and the most known Panamanian professional boxer. He is definitely ranked as one of the greatest boxers in the sport.

After numerous specials and films, documentary I Am Durán follows the famed boxer through his life in the barrio of Panama into his boxing matches, including the infamous fights with Sugar Ray Leonard.

The documentary features interviews with Roberto Durán, Sugar Ray Leonard, Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Ricky Hatton.

Here’s the synopsis:

Roberto Durán is a boxing, behemoth, a titanic figure with a career straddling five epic decades who is regarded as one of the most entertaining and skilled fighters of all time. I Am Durán tells his story, inextricably interwoven with the story of the nation of Panama.

As Roberto Durán rose, fell and rose again, staggering between glory and disaster, buffeted by the brutal blows of his opponents and life itself—so did his beloved Panama. A country brought to its knees as a pawn in violent regional and international politics and suffering from the harsh yoke of dictator Manuel Noriega’s ruthless regime, in its darkest hour Panama needed a hero, a voice, and an identity.

Roberto Duran’s impact transcended boxing and politics. Born a fighter, his success inside the ring transformed him into an icon, yet it was his flaws and failures outside the ring that made him a hero and continue to ensure that his universal appeal and popularity endure to this day.

LRM Online sat down exclusively with Roberto Durán to discuss the documentary, the life and his career. The interview is translated in both English and Spanish.

I Am Durán will be available as digital download starting tomorrow on June 4.
