This edit keeps the focus on Jim Braddock and his struggle to keep his family afloat.
The sub-plot about some guy he befriends who eventually dies has been removed.
There is less exposition about the Goulds selling off their stuff.
Much of the fight sequences have been re-edited. In the original cut, the camera is constantly cutting away to show the reactions of spectators and people listening to the fight. There's also so much running commentary by the ringside announcer that it gets a bit annoying. This edit has fewer cutaways, and some of the ringside commentary has been toned down.
Most of the epilogue history factoids have been removed. We now only see the one about what Braddock did with the money he won in the Baer fight since that's the most relevant. Go to wikipedia if you want to learn more about Jim Braddock.
Time needed for the edition:
