It is because that is how it was in the book. I believe, but I am not sure, that it is because he was once a ballerina. Its because the stories parallel. She came from the poor girl to become The Princess of the Ball. He came from the depression era to become King of the Ring. So he was nicknamed The Cinderella Man, by a ringside reporter. The movie is based on the real life of Jim Braddock.
