Synopsis
Split Decision is the story of Gabriel Jesus Sandoval Chavez, a young man with a promising boxing future who lost his dream when arrested for robbing a grocery store with some gang members. His parents and community went into a state of deep shock. Almost four years later, Gabriel was released and moved to Austin, TX, to escape the temptations of his old life in Chicago. There, he began pursuing boxing again as a diversion, and a local trainer talked him into fighting professionally. Shockingly, he won against older, professional fighters, time and again, and gradually rose through the ranks to become a top contender. Never naturalized, as an immigrant and the perpetrator of a serious crime, he was ineligible to remain for long in the U.S. That problem and others are highlighted along with Gabriel finally getting his shot against the Mexican national champion. ~ Rob Ferrier, All Movie Guide

Films that any self-respecting vato-loco can appreciate (listed in no particular order). It's sad because there just aren't that many out there.
