    • Synopsis
    • Argentine Boxer, Oscar Natalio Bonavena, popularly known as Ringo, was murdered at the gate of a brothel in Nevada, Reno, in the USA in 1976. Ringo, who had fought with Muhammad Ali, had never lost hope of having the chance of a revenge with the American boxer. It`s still unknown how Bonavena was murdered; however, it`s well- known that he was killed by a security guard called Brymer who had been probably sent by Joe Conforte, the owner of the brothel. Apparently, the enmity with the Argentine boxer was due to his relationship with Sally, the mafioso`s wife. The documentary covers all the mysteries related to Bonavena`s death. This story was actually inspired by the acclaimed Oscar winner Film Director, Taylor Hackford, for the movie, Love Ranch, with Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren in it. Even though this fiction tries to tell some interesting facts of the Mustang Ranch and Ringo, "I´m Ringo" is the real story of what really happed.
