Rumble, young woman, rumble.

Emerging from Flint, Michigan, Claressa Shields set the boxing world on fire, first as a two-time Olympic gold medal winner, then a highly-successful pro.

Her fists crack like thunder and lightning, and so does her Twitter feed, where she rightfully stands up for herself and all she’s achieved in record time.

This doc, which chronicles life in and out of the ring, remains one of the best sports films of the past decade.

Mixing action-packed rumbles with quieter, more personal moments as Shields finds her way in the world, it’s a first round knockout.
