Boxing - The Ultimate Collection DVD
Collection of documentaries about the world of boxing, focusing on some of the sport's greatest champions. 'The Fabulous Four' profiles four legendary boxers - Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas 'The Hit Man' Hearns and 'Marvellous' Marvin Hagler - whose rivalry commenced with the 'Brawl in Montreal'.
This was the contest which saw an over-confident Leonard lose his crown to Duran.
Hearns had lost out to Hagler in 1985, and it was the latter who Leonard selected to take on in his comeback for the World Middleweight Championship. 'Muhammed Ali: Champion of the Century' examines the career of the great boxing showman.
Tracking his rise to superstardom through some of his most memorable encounters, including his fights with Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, Henry Cooper, and Floyd Patterson, the film shows the consummate performer at his very best, both inside and outside the ring. 'The History of Heavyweight Boxing' chronicles the history of this division, from its origins through to the careers of some of the sport's most influential boxers, including Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Floyd Patterson, Rocky Marciano, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson.
The film features archive footage from some of the biggest heavyweight fights of all time including Muhammad Ali (as Cassius Clay)'s unexpected victory over reigning champion Sonny Liston and his epic bouts with long-time rival Joe Frazier. 'Tyson' profiles the eponymous and controversial boxer, undisputed World Heavyweight Champion between 1987 and 1990.
The programme includes footage from Tyson's championship fights with Buster Douglas, Michael Spinks, Trevor Berbick and Lennox Lewis, as well as interviews with 'Iron Mike' himself.
