PANAMA. Roberto Duran’s movie, “The Real One,” is already being written, said Duran during a visit to Mexico, as a special guest to America’s boxing convention.
Duran, Panama’s sports ambassador, said that to write the movie, he has narrated his life to some “Latin American boys” who are working alongside his son on the movie script, which will narrate step by step his life as a professional boxer.
“They are still in the writing process with the information I gave them. My son is in charge of everything,” the five time world champion said.
The 57-year-old Duran said that he is dedicated full-time to making appearances throughout the United States to sign autographs and attend shows.
On the current boxing scenario in Panama, Duran considers that it is not at its best which is why he is going to ask Panama’s president to support boxing, a sport that has brought much fame to the country.
“I am going to talk to the president so he helps amateur boxing, because this is what gives most fame (to the country); there’s also football, but it doesn’t bring us as much fame as boxing,” he said.
The former champ added that boxing in Panama “is a bit lazy”, because boxers move directly to professional without spending some time as amateurs category, to gain them more experience.
