4.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding portrait of an outstanding fighter, 4 Mar. 2008
This review is from: J.C. Chavez - The Ultimate Mexican Hero [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
This is the career bio of the great Mexican fighter and all time legend Julio Cesar Chavez. Chavez's career lasted from 1983 until 2005 (22 years)and saw him amass an incredible record of 107-6-2 (86) including an incredible 37 'world' title fights, accross 3 weight divisions and including a staggering combined 27 title defences It sould be noted as well that after a ninety fight unbeaten run, 4 of those 6 defeats came after Chavez turned 46 and had already been a pro for 14 years.

It is only befitting then that such a talent gets a wortwhile release and not a posthumous one. This dvd runs for 78 minutes and includes interviews with Chavez himself along with the likes of Oscar De lay Hoya (who twice beat Chavez), Mike Tyson, Don King and Chavez's son Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr (as of 2008 an undefeated pro) amongst others.

Of course no career retrospective would be complete without footage of the great man himself and this dvd is full of clips of the great man himself and all his major battles.

With a career spanning 2 decades, 37 world title fights and over 110 bouts there is of course probabably enough footage to cover a 50 dvd boxset and if your after a complete set of all the 'BIG' matches, then this sint it. This is a career retrosepective and a fascinating one at that.

I would reccomend this to both fans of Chavez and those new to the name (possinly as a precursor to seeking out the full bouts). A very good effort indeed!
