Watch this even if you are not a boxing fan!
23 November 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful docu-movie this is. It has it all, a marvelous story, excellent directorship, powerful editing and a score you will love. I so enjoyed this and would heartily recommended it to all, boxing fan or not. It may be too simplistic but this movie is to boxing what Senna was to motor racing, the sport is secondary it is first and foremost a human story and what a story it is!

Surprisingly the "real" star of the story is possibly not even Joe Calzaghe but his Dad, Enzo. How someone with no boxing pedigree can bring his son to the pinnacle of sporting stardom is truly a joy to watch!

Enjoy, I am sure you will feel better having watched Mr Calzaghe than you did when you sat down to watch it.
