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.

Love this dvd and seeing how down to earth joe calzaghe really is and the love he shares with his family. this is why he was so succesful and undefeated, his comitment to boxing is amazing and the bond he shares with enzo calzaghe comes through they throw every punch together. and deservidly gets the recognision of one of the all time greats. this certainly should be in any boxing fans collection. i only got the privlage of going to see one calzaghe fight which was i belive one of his greatest performances, against jeff lacey! the crowd was electric and many of our atlantic cousins thought mr lacey would come over and smash calzaghe within 2 rounds and didnt show him much respect by even thinkin wales was in england! but calazaghe taught lacey a boxing lesson, every round was a barage of punches with no reply from lacey! absolute legend! long live the legacy of calzaghe!

It is difficult to produce a JOE CALZAGHE DVD which can project how great this boxer was - as both amateur and professional. I guess because nobody realised how great they would become in the beginning! Like Carl Froche he was exceptional - disciplined, dedicated, determined and the best durable boxers ever - a reward to the boxing fraternity. How a boxer takes a punch is a critical asset - Joe and Carl never flinched - stayed focused and that is what made them the best all round pugilists ever! My opinion after over 65 years as both boxer and coach !

An excellent DVD showing the true quality that is Joe calzaghe, the behind the scenes leading to the jones fight were interesting but why does it say on the cover that it's the full fight? Unlike the dvds featuring his battles with lacy, hopkins and kessler, there were huge chunks missing which disappointed me greatly, especially as it was his last ever fight, otherwise it was a superb watch

The usual sporting special DVD released for xmas is a thinly disguised grab at despereate shoopers money. Offering little that isn't already in the public domain, a lot of repeats and fight footage with chunks missing.

This is ddifferent. Fight fans or simply interested punters can buy this safe in the knowledge that you will get a good healthy dose of documnetary footage, full fight action and alot of unseen clips and stories about the man himself. For those that are real fans there might not be alot of ne info here, but it is a comprehensive portrayal and a good video biography. The interview is well put togehter and again not something i have seen elsewhere, so the points and anecdotes are fresha and you feel Joe is conscious about his legacy and what people may think of him. A more comprehensive set of highlights would have been good but this is more than adequate and the blurb on the front sums it up better than most. You get what you pay for for sure

I enjoyed it and am glad to have it in my collection as Joe is one the UKs greatest fighters and this is a fitting tribute.

I ordered this DVD and paid for it immediately. However i sent an email to the seller the same day asking for this order to be cancelled. (I had found out that someone else had already bought the same one, it was a birthday present).

I had sent 2 further emails asking for this be cancelled but all of them were completley ignored and the DVD sent to me!

I will not be buying anything from this seller again

No fight footage on this dvd, aside from that the interviews and some of the training footage are quite good, might be worth putting subtitles on when Enzo is talking.

Great Dvd of a great guy and a great champion. His record speaks for itself, in his career he beat eleven world champions.
