Five-Time World Champion Boxer Vinny Paz Shares Thoughts
About Upcoming Movie, "Bleed For This" (Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese
and Starring Miles Teller), Boxing, God and What's Next
Paz photos released for celebrity ad campaign "Wocket in
Your Pocket" and Vinny talks about new wine venture - "This whole thing started
because I went to see a movie called Rocky when I was 15 and that's why we're
making 'Bleed for This' in 2015" - Vinny Paz
NEW YORK and POINT ROBERTS, Wash., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Investorideas.com (http://www.investorideas.com), a global news source covering
leading sectors including sports stocks, issues an exclusive interview with
former world champion boxer in the lightweight and light middleweight classes,
Vinny Pazienza (PAZ). Vinny discusses his upcoming movie, 'Bleed for This' and
what's next for his career. Vinny also talks about his recently released online
photo ads for NXT-ID's (OTCQB: NXTD) Wocket smart wallet (http://www.wocketwallet.com),
designed to replace all
the cards in your wallet and discusses his plans for a new wine company.
Vinny's new movie "Bleed for This" is executive-produced by movie icon Martin
Scorsese and has some well-known names in Hollywood attached to it, including
Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart. "Bleed for This" tells the true-life story of
five-time, world champion Rhode Island boxer Vinny Pazienza, as he recovers from
a near-fatal car accident that left him with a broken neck. He goes on to later
win three additional world boxing titles, creating one of the most incredible
comeback stories in boxing and sports history.
Vinny it's great to speak to you. I'm a big-time boxing fan and it's exciting to
see your true life story come alive in a major motion picture. What does that
mean to you, at this point in your life?
A: Vinny Paz
I feel very fortunate that I'm going to be the one that will inspire a lot of
people and I'm just as excited as I can be. And I'm very thankful.
What does it feel like to have movie legend Martin Scorsese attached to "Bleed
A: Vinny Paz
It's amazing. At first I couldn't believe it. You know, I was just talking to a
friend about how no-one knows for sure if there's a Greater Being upstairs. But
it's something that is up there. It's helped me because I've been blessed. I've
been down in the bottom of the ocean and I've been on the top of the mountain.
And I've been blessed in both places. I've come out looking pretty good at
times. So I'm leaning more towards the idea of God as I get closer and closer to
Miles Teller is playing the role of Vinny Paz. Ironically, he survived a
near-fatal crash and has come back to be a star. Do you think he can portray the
man the world saw come back and train to fight again?
A: Vinny Paz
I've seen Miles a couple of times. I've seen him on talk shows. I've seen him in
a couple of movies, and I think he's got the right swagger. I think he's got the
moves to pull it off. Yes, I do. One of the reasons why Miles was attracted to
this story is because he was in a car accident and almost died and they said he
would never, ever be able to return to his full capacity ever again. And he
said, "Don't tell me I can't, because I know I can". That was a real attraction
at that point. We both went through the same things.
Aaron Eckhart, a big name in the industry right now, is going to play the role
of Kevin Rooney, the trainer that worked with you for the comeback. What do you
think of that and what is the most important quality he needs to show the
audience to be believable?
A: Vinny Paz
I loved Kevin Rooney and there was mutual love back from him, so me and Kevin
were really tight. Miles and Aaron need to have that kind of relationship and
chemistry to pull it off. And I know they will; they're two of the greatest
So as your movie moves ahead, what are some of your favorite boxing movies out
A: Vinny Paz
Well, this whole thing started because I went to see a movie called Rocky when I
was 15. That's the truth. And that's how we're making "Bleed for This" in 2015.
For new boxing fans, what is your signature power punch or combination?
A: Vinny Paz
I had a punch, an overhand right that I used to call the Melvin. It was because
I knocked out this kid in the third round. He was a top ten fighter. I knocked
him out with one punch over the top; you know, a wild punch. I wound it up and
then threw it over the top - knocked this kid out. He went down face-first like
a tree and ever since that punch, we call it the Melvin. That's my famous
So now that your name is back in the headlines and associated with some very
famous Hollywood names, what's next for you?
A: Vinny Paz
A lot of people talk about and pitch reality shows to me and I don't want to do
that because you have to overact. You have to go over the top.
A fun part of the celebrity role is also doing some product sponsorships and
ads. I hear you just had a product shot today with NXT-ID's (OTCQB: NXTD) Wocket,
part of the celebrity "Wocket in your Pocket" ad campaign? How did that go and
what do you think of the idea of the Wocket smart wallet? (http://www.wocketwallet.com)
A: Vinny Paz
I think it's pretty wild how they come up with these tech things. I feel like
such a prehistoric dinosaur. This Wocket is unbelievable. I can't believe they
made this, it's great. I think the Wocket is going to be one of the biggest
things in the world, in the near future.
How would you compare your current wallet to the Wocket?
A: Vinny Paz
Well, my wallet is about five inches deep so I can't wait to use the Wocket.
What other kind of products would you like to work with; boxing or sports or
A: Vinny Paz
I definitely want to go outside of boxing. Everybody loves wine, you know and
I'm no different. So I'm working on a new line of wine and we're going to call
it "Five Times Better." I made sure that I loved the taste of it and I just
think it's off-the-hook great!
In closing, as a boxing fan and someone who has done the workouts just for fun,
I appreciate the dedication and character it takes to be a boxer. To come back
after your accident and train like you did, requires a different kind of man
altogether; what drove you to do that?
A: Vinny Paz
It's just determination and persistence and it makes me think I'm not better
than anybody. Nobody's better than anybody. But I'm different from most people.
I was born from a different mold. And I had great parents. I had good genes. I
used to say when I was fighting, "I'm tough as nails". I used to say "I'm tough
as nails; I'm tough as steel and I bite nails for breakfast". Now, I bite tin
foil. But you still have to be a little tough to do that.
