In the sports drama film Southpaw, a promising boxer's career is derailed by tragedy. If he is to regain both his career and his family, he'll need the help of a trainer who specializes in taking on the tough cases. Billy "The Great" Hope is a professional boxer living in New York City with his wife Maureen and their only daughter Leila. During his match against Darius Jones at Madison Square Garden, Maureen gets scared as Billy takes several horrific hits to the face, resulting in profuse bleeding out of his eye. Billy wins the match by knockout and retain the light heavyweight title, despite nasty injuries. As the press surrounds Billy, a younger upstart boxer, Miguel "Magic" Escobar, taunts Billy to fight him. Upon returning home, Maureen fears for Billy's safety and urges him to quit. Later at the Hope house, Maureen talks to Billy's manager Jordan Mains, and disagrees with his plan to get Billy to sign a two-year deal for three more fights.
