Default Blue Bear (from the movie, Million Dollar Baby).

Hello. I just watched the movie yesterday. I'm not a boxer (none around where I live), but I've always been a fan of the sport. Anyway, at the end of the movie it didn't say what happened to blue bear (the women who was ultimately responsible for Maggie's injury). Was she disbarred from boxing or were there any legal proceedings? Or was the late hit that ultimately caused Maggie's near-fatal injury not considered illegal? I did a google search on the history of blue bear but couldn't find anything useful.

Anyway, thank you for your time and any helpful information.

Million Dollar Baby is based on a short story, a work of fiction. It is in no way factual.

No problem. Good to see a new poster who is respectful of others and polite. I hope you stick around.

It could have been based on a true story with some parts made up, here and there.

I think that part of the movie and what followed ruined the movie for me.
