*Rubin Carter, the boxer portrayed by Denzel Washington in the 1999 film “The Hurricane,” is fighting prostate cancer.

Carter was diagnosed in 2011 and was given three to six months to live, but the frail 76-year-old is still fighting the disease.

“It’s hard to look at him like this,” a source tells the New York Daily News.
