The Golden Age of Heavyweight Boxing,
This review is from: Champions Forever [DVD] (DVD)
The greatest ever era in heavyweight boxing is perfectly represented in this great boxing documentary. The era of Muhammad Ali, Smokin Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Ken Norton and Larry Holmes is regarded as the 'golden age' which spanned 3 decades.
Unlike most boxing documentaries, this DVD concentrates more on the fights and the fighters careers and their many classic encounters ..... not just with each other, but there careers aswell. These fights are linked together with actual news footage, music of the time and the political climate of the day, making this a fascinating insight into this particular point in history.
From Ali's first fights all the way to Larry Holmes first defence; this DVD is a brilliant review of the glden age of heavyweight boxing. Its interesting, moving and documents the great fights of this time. A must for any boxing fan and possibly the greatest sports documentary of all time ... certainly the best boxing film you will ever see.
