In sports, there is nothing better than a rivalry. When two opponents step up to face one another, and have nothing more than animosity towards each other and a desire to win, it’s the kind of storytelling you can’t make up. It’s relatable, emotional, and fundamentally human. La Guerra Civil brings us the epic boxing feud between legendary boxers Oscar De La Hoya and Julio César Chávez in the 1990s, leading up to their collision against one another in 1996. But for each fighter, it was more than just about winning a boxing title, or proving who was the best between the two of them. No, it was a battle to determine who was the real face of Mexican boxing. But both men’s path to this fight are full of hard work and similarities.
