There was a group of Canadians, and there were different relationships with each one and Rubin. The movie was made to pay them back for what they had invested in his case, after he had split from them. But Rubin and Lesra remained on good terms.

Some of the stuff about the police was over the top. That includes a number of things, and the Canadians that stayed in NJ were nervous, felt they were being watched, but were not "threatened." And while DeSimone was crooked, he didn't go back to the childhood scene as inthe movie. Later, Rubin did come to understand that Vince was convinced Rubin was involved -- though he and John were not the actual gunmen. And, before the second trial, the prosecutor had submitted in pre-trial hearings that they were going to go after Carter as the "brains" behind the crime, but not the guy with the shotgun. But they went back to the original theory a short time before the trial.

And, of course, his title shot with Joey was not one-sided at all. There was no delay in the decision. Rubin had long since cared about boxing. It was uncomfortable for him the time that he did attend the boxing hall of fame's induction ceremonies -- another former top contender kept saying, "I beat you" .... as if that type of thing was important.
