Premier mundial

A boxer and a poet, Sergio Victor Palma was the first Argentine champion to obtain the title in the US. Now, at the age of 59, he wants to reopen a gym in Lanus where he continues to encourage young people to pursue their dreams, from a small chair by the side of the ring. 

“I can stay on the ring until I’m old and go gray, because I know how to hit and dance in order to disappear”, said once the Superman of boxing, Muhammad Ali. The first Argentine world champion to have won the title in the US, Sergio Víctor Palma, held a similar feeling for decades. The fighter from Chaco, who raised passions among people in the late ‘60s, no longer covers his hands with gloves: he now fights inside his damaged body to prevent the memories from melting away. Hernán Fernández uses close-ups to depict the serenity of this wise man –he fights like Rocky, trains the young with Mickey’s passion, and was also a poet and a musician– and tries to find an answer to the question that haunted Sergio for years: what happens after you reach the top of the world?
