Pretty much what you would expect.
I got the Blu-ray for Christmas.
If you are a fan of boxing or Calzaghe you should watch this. No debate about that. Boxing is not the same anymore.
That said there is nothing really surprising about this documentary.
It focuses a lot on the father/son relationship. You see Enzo talking about how he gave up his music and became a trainer.
We see clips of a young Calzaghe in his amateur days. And we see clips of the most meaningful fights of his career and Joe talks a little about each fight. A few buildup clips are shown too (God, I hate that Hopkins guy).
It felt like it could have been longer. It felt slightly rushed. It should have shown more buildup and post fight interviews. It was mentioned that the no-loss record was a psychological problem for Joe. The stress of keeping the 0. But nothing from Joe's own mouth. We did not get enough of his inner thoughts. Who is Joe Calzaghe as a person?
Oh those little cute kids of his? Not so little anymore. Time flies...
The extras was fun for me as a Dane because it features Mikkel Kessler. They show a lengthy clip of Joe and Mikkel watching and commenting their fight and playing ping pong. That was good fun. I think it is great that you can fight professionally and still be friends. No need for this Hopkins gangster s... Damn, Kessler looked like Ivan Drago in their fight.
Time to end this review. Final verdict. You gotta have it! You know you do!
