45 Fantastic Fights [DVD]
Frequently bought together
What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
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.

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.
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.
