Synopsis

***WINNER OF BEST SHORT DOCUMENTARY AT URBAN FILM FESTIVAL 2021***

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. We join him backstage as director Guillermo Alfonso documents all the intense moments leading up to Diaz’s first title fight at age 40 against legendary MMA fighter Thiago Alves. Trained by boxing Hall Of Famer Commander Zero and accompanied by his fiancé Ashley Sebera aka Dana Brook (WWE superstar Diva), we realize that Diaz has been preparing for this moment his whole life. After hearing his story you will know that no matter what your circumstances are, it’s NEVER TOO LATE.

Director Biography – Guillermo Alfonso

Guillermo Alfonso is a film maker from Miami with a unique style of storytelling. Usually niche and quirky, Alfonso likes to take the viewer on a journey normally inaccessible. From the Yamakoshi Mountains of Japan filming koi fish to the mean streets of Nigeria filming African religions, we always get a sense of understanding and appreciation of where these stories come from through Alfonso’s lens. He is able to keep you locked in with his beautiful imagery and take on cinema, yet take you on an emotional roller coaster with the topics and casts.

Director Statement

I have been filming my friend Uly Diaz for over 3 years. I was finally able to put the story together and I couldn’t be any more proud of how he told it. I hope this film inspires and motivates people and that we all realize that it’s never too late to really go after our passion in life.
