The boxer who “fought back” from life and fought against his destiny | culture and entertainment

When Aarón González was 10 years old, he was hit by a car while waiting for the school bus. He was about to die. The most optimistic medical report suggested that both legs would have to be amputated. But his mother did not give up. And neither does he. He not only got ahead and walked again. He ended up becoming the Spanish boxing champion.

His admirable story of overcoming arrives this Friday to the cinema screens. The Galician director and screenwriter Carlos Prado, a neighbor of this boxer from Marín (Pontevedra) since they were children, signs “Returning the blow”, a documentary that deals with the life of this athlete, to whom nobody has given anything. Rather the complete opposite.
