  Opinion: Showtime documentary shows Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler as true 'Kings' A Showtime documentary called The Kings explores one of the greatest eras of boxing in the 1980s.Sorry to sound like Yoda but no sport chronicles what it means to be a human being more than boxing. The highs and lows. The overcoming of pain. The victories. The work ethic that's required to achieve. The work ethic that's required beyond that to excel. The one-on-one battles, as the documentary shows, against opponents whether it's systemic racism, the perils of capitalism or moral pitfalls. Boxing is all of those things, because life is all of those things, and boxing has long been the ultimate human mirror.

This is the biggest event of the night given the history between the two content creators. McBroom challenged Hall to a fight in December 2020. Things escalated in March 2021 when Hall shared texts between the two and McBroom said Hall was "too scared to fight." Just five days after that exchange, an official fight was announced.
