At last - a sporting DVD that's worth watching.
on 14 November 2008
Let's face it, most sporting DVDs are just bloody awful - some stock footage cobbled together with a couple of interviews bought off ITV.
That's not the case with Joe Calzaghe - My Life Story. Co-produced by Calzaghe himself, this is an intimate portrait of the man himself, with never-seen-before footage of Joe and his family. If you really want to get to know what Calzaghe is like, there is no better place to start - from Newbridge Gym in Abercarn to the family home in Sardinia via the bright lights of Las Vegas. With interviews from living legends such as Sugar Ray Leonard and Jake La Motta, this is a boxerphile's wet dream.
Although what really sets this DVD apart is the inimitable Enzo Calzaghe - Joe's father/trainer, he's as mad as a box of frogs and twice as funny. Get a couple of mates round, crack open a couple of beers and throw this on your DVD player - trust me, you won't be disappointed.
