Directed by Guillermo Alfonso

Never Too Late is short biopic about passion and determination. We find ourselves face to face in the ring with Ulysses “The Monster” Diaz as he tells his incredible story of pain and perseverance. Diaz is an accomplished boxer and a bare knuckle fighter most famously known for holding the world’s fastest knock out in sports combat history ( 3 seconds!) made official by Guiness World Records. From prison time to becoming head of security for his child hood best friend Pitbull, Diaz has had one hell of a ride so far that seems to have just started.
