The impresario and his plan

IMDB 6.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 67% liked it
A previous world champion tries to make his mark again with the help of his manager. His manager uses dubious means to garner interest in the small town that they visit. We'll see the interplay between the two and others, how circumstances change and values are upheld. I'll give this a 7.0/10

My impressions:

He is not the champion anymore
Even though
The blurbs say otherwise
Despite the appearance
Those who know will realise
He is on the way down

There are some who know
That if there is a fair fight
The champion will be dethroned

The manager thinks differently
The big bucks are his calling
He will do anything possible
To perpetuate the myth
That the champion is still
The greatest

Conditions change
There is a different view
To continue, to run away, to accept defeat
Those questions
Have to be answered
Before another day begins
