Reviews

In 1867 boxing underwent some important changes. Gloves had to be worn, scoring was limited to three minute rounds and the referee had full control. As it was the eighth Marquis of Queensbury that played a key role in these changes the first World Championship in 1884 was held under 'Queensbury Rules'. This DVD shows some of the best boxing bouts since then.

Overall this DVD is a little disappointing but for boxing fanatics like myself you do get the ease of having a vast range of quality fighters all in one place.
Yes at times the picture quality is poor and some of the clips are rushed and badly edited including the Jack Johnson Stanley Ketchel title fight.
You see neither punch that knocked down both fighters, the knock down's are what made this fight legendary.
However the DVD redeems itself with coverage of the Jack Dempsey Jess Willard world title fight from 1919.
The fight is almost completely covered with some decent commentary.
Most of the other fights are brief and the picture quality varies between bouts.
Having said that the DVD covers the early years of boxing so what do you expect?
Overall not bad value but there is better out there.

The DVD has clips of old fights, in -as expected- poor poor quality.

It sells cheap, yet I'm giving it 3 stars (instead of 5) for disclosure reasons: the title should be "45 (not full) fights".

Beyond the 3-pound mark, Youtube clips become a winning alternative.

Unfortunately the newsreel clips used in this dvd are very old and, in some cases, so dark that the tops of the fighters cannot be seen. The post-war clips are better and I have enjoyed watching a number of fights which I had previously only listened to on the wireless (that word gives my age away). If you are an enthusiast or researching a PhD in pugilism, it's a good buy.

The gloves were lighter, the rounds were longer and every one in the crowd wore a hat. A worthy nod to a great era.

These fights are in fact of the best. Ienjoy watching it. I'll buy more of this.

You can see how poor heavyweight-division is today. Can't compare it to the old masters at all!
