Fantastic inside look at the greatest bouts in history
If you are a boxing fan, you need to watch every one of these. If you are not a boxing fan, you need to watch them too. This inside look at the worlds greatest boxing rounds tells the true entire story of the boxing matches it examines. You will look at the fights and the fighters in a different way. The best and the one I recommend the most is Hagler-Hearnes. Second is Hagler-Leonard. Its a balanced view, one that leaves the viewer with a new outlook on each profiled match. I hope one day that the DVD set will be available, and I hope also that more fights will be profiled in the future. They are still show up on HBO from time to time, and I TVO every single one. You will learn something new about every single match, and you will learn something every time you watch them, again and again and again.
