Classic DVD - Fully recommend!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nigel Benn Vs Chris Eubank - World Middleweight Championship 1990 [DVD] (DVD)
Very impressed with this and have played many times in front of friends and has always gone down a treat.
It is taken from the ITV footage from 1990 (the glory days when boxing was on normal telly) and the opening music certainly takes me back.
So many things are enjoyable about the dvd (in the build up: Benns rap, Eubanks espression when knocking out Brazillian, Reginaldo Dos Santos, the famous faces at ringside and Eubanks pre-match interview where he confidently asserts that a boxer will always beat a puncher.
One of my friends commented how he enjoyed fights from this era due to the fact there was no sponsorship on the trunks etc. It certainly is a blast from the past.
The fight is excellent and the after match interviews are entertaining and moving in their own way.
You may wonder why Chris Eubanks doesn't come in to 'Simply the Best' for his ring entrance. Apparently this was due to some of Benns team sabotaging his music to even things up as Benn had come in overweight on the day of the fight and had to do some exhaustive training to shift it off leaving him dehydrated. I also can't get out of my head the 'Dangerous' song/loop Benn comes into. Awesome stuff.
So yes if you are a boxing fan I thoroughly recommend this and I hope the company get some more out. Classic nostalgia from t' Good Old Days
