Summary/Review: "Carlos Monzon was one of Argentina's most celebrated figures. A renowned boxing champion and movie actor who enjoyed affairs with beautiful women, he also harbored a secret life of drug use, alcohol, and domestic violence. When his estranged wife was found dead-strangled and tossed from a balcony-Monzon confessed that they'd fought the night before, but he couldn't remember what had happened.
