Watch Jake Gyllenhaal Steel Himself For A Bloody Battle In This Exclusive 'Southpaw' Clip

Seeing Jake Gyllenhaal's pristine face take a beating might be traumatizing for some, so allow us to prepare you. The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from "Southpaw," the new movie in which Gyllenhaal plays boxing champion Billy Hope, whose life is upended when his wife, Maureen (Rachel McAdams), is killed and his daughter (Oona Laurence) is put in foster care. Here, Billy struggles through a match knowing that Maureen isn't in the crowd cheering him on, and we struggle with Gyllenhaal's bloody visage. 

Directed by "Training Day" maestro Antoine Fuqua and written by "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter, "Southpaw" opens Friday. Read our interview with Gyllenhaal here, and watch the clip below.
