Damon Feldman became the "Jewish Rocky" when he was nine years old, and he got his first taste of the celebrity spotlight when he was featured in the August 15, 1983 issue of Sports Illustrated. There he was, in the glossy pages of the famous sports magazine, telling the world that this kid from Broomall, PA scored a second-round knockout to win the Philadelphia Junior Olympic boxing title in the 13-and-under 112-pound class. He had been boxing since age five and had an 8-1 record with two KOs. But no one knew the REAL fight story that went on behind the scenes….
This is a story of grit, ambition and determination to succeed in the face of adversity. It is the story of knock-downs, hard knocks and knock-outs. It is the story of a family of fighters. And most of all, it is a story of inspiration and heart—
that of the 16 Minute Man, Damon Feldman, aka the Jewish Rocky.
