The term Cinderella has come to mean someone who enjoys a very quick rise to greatness
It comes from the fairy tale 'Cinderella' who goes overnight from a lowly fireplace tender (CINDER-ella) to being a princess.
-Wow, that boxer won his first 5 fights!

"During the Great Depression, James J. Braddock--a.k.a. the Cinderella Man--was to become one of the most surprising sports legends in history. By the early 1930s, the impoverished ex-prizefighter was seemingly as broken-down, beaten-up and out-of-luck as much of the rest of the American populace who had hit rock bottom.

Suddenly thrust into the national spotlight, he would defy the odds against him and stun the world with one of the greatest comebacks in history. Driven by love for his family, he willed an impossible dream to come true."
Guess I'm lucky, Some of us don't get a second chance... But I aint blowing this one... I feel like I can do anything now

Anyone who gets a second chance and succeeds the second time. From the movie and fairy tale Cinderella where Cinderella got a second chance at life and succeeded. (Cinderella man is also a great movie)
He was a real Cinderella Man after he aced the test even though he failed it the first time.

Contrary to popular belief, it's not the same as the movie. A cinderella man is a gay man, usually one who does drag.
"Dude, check out that cinderella man! His high heels are higher than my girlfriend's!"
