Anyone have any info about this rarity or know if there's a copy in circulation?Can't seem to find anything about it other than that it was written by Enzo Pulcrano who loosely based the story on his own life as a former professional middleweight boxer.

Plot synopsis from the IMDB:
'Two juvenile delinquents leave a detention house, where they became friends. Paolo Vita starts a regular life as car mechanic, finds a girlfriend, Anna, and his loved by his mother Maria and his sister Silvana. A good athlete, he starts winning successive amateur matches, and after his 28th win, Franz approaches him with a proposal: he will fight and lose on purpose, to receive a large amount of money from Rome's underworld betting. Paolo accepts, as he needs the money badly, to pay for an operation of his orphan friend Marco. His decision is reproached by family and friends, he tries to get back, but Frank beats him up, and kills Marco. Paolo fights back, and gets his independence back. To please his mother, he promises her he will fight for the championship, but untrained and physically unfit, he will die of cardiac arrest just after winning the middle-weight championship'.

I've also been after this for as long as I can remember. I've never seen it on anyone's trade list or ever heard of anyone with a copy. I had the excellent Franco Bixio soundtrack on my MP3 player for the best part of last year but too bad the film is so elusive.

Incidentally, there's a nice Italian fotobusta up on eBay at the moment for 10EUR..

Doesn't help much but I read that apparently this was screened on an Argentinian TV channel some years back...
