Saturday Man Movie

In this scene from the 1975 movie Hard Times, Charles Bronson fights bare-knuckle brawls while his fast-talking promoter, Speed (played by James Coburn) sets up the fights and blows the winnings.

In this scene, he's fighting Robert Tessier, a stunt man and former circus performer who was well-known back in the 70's and 80's for his roles as a villain in numerous tough-guy films. He usually played an outlaw biker or other rough, and before he took up acting, he was a paratrooper in the Korean war, earning the Silver Star and a Purple Heart. Robert Tessier died of cancer in 1990, a real man to the last.
