Mark Kriegel's 2012 book on boxer Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini was outstanding, a compelling peek behind the curtain into the life of a fighter and the relationship that defined him.

The book, which has earned rave reviews, has been turned into a documentary movie, "The Good Son: The Ray Mancini Story," which will air Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Network.

The documentary tells the story of Mancini's meeting with the son of boxer Duk Koo Kim, who died of brain injuries he suffered during a 1982 bout on national television in Las Vegas with Mancini.

It's a captivating, emotional film that handles a difficult subject with ease.

It's an excellent story and well worth your time. Check it out
