The heroes dvd is a complete waste of space. please approach with causion.
1 first of all its all old dvds that most boxing fans have.
2 a lot of the fights that are advertised on the disc are not really on there. the major one being benn v mcclennan ! which is a great fight that i was looking forward to seeing on dvd.
also a few of hameds fights and calzaghes fights that are listed on not really there.
3 this is the biggest problem with this. they have put the calzaghe - jeff lacy fight in the pack 2 times!! which is complete pointless and a waste of our enjoyment. why frank warren has done this is a puzzle.
its featured on both of the calzaghe discs, and the second disc is just the lacy fight . so basically this disc u would never even use or get out of the packet, why would you ??
i cant understand why warren didnt put on a disc of calzaghe vs kessler ,hopkins or even mafredo. he promoted all of these fights. so why couldnt he do that instead of wasting our money.
for these reasons im recommending people steer clear of this

Ok if you don't already own the Calzaghe, Hatton and Hamed dvds that have been released by Frank Warren/Lace then this is a great purchase. However if you are a fight fan that already has dvds on these 3 then its not really worth it - since all the footage and fights is the same as the previous releases.

The Box set contains some of the best british boxers & fights of alltime.
I'd forgotten just how good some of these fights really were. From Calzaghe v Lacy to the classic battles between Benn & Eubank, they're all on here & easy to skip to if you just want to view a quick fight out of the hundreds in this set. A must have weather you're a real boxing fan or just enjoy watching some of the best fights of all time.
