During the years leading up to World war two, a common-man hero, Primo Carnera – a.k.a. The Walking Mountain – was to become one of the most surprising sports legend in history.
Through most of the 20’s Carnera never relinquished his determination and fought against all odds to be the best.
First spotted by a flamboyant carnival owner, Ledudal and later taken under the wing of a corrupt and evil manager, Leon See, Carnera experienced a meteoric rise to the top.
Driven by love, honor and an incredible dose of grit, he willed an impossible dream to come true. In 1933 in Madison Square Garden in New York City, Carnera defeated Jack Sharkey in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Suddenly, the ordinary working man from a small town in Italy had become a mythic athlete.
