Hollywood has produced many great boxing films, both fictional and based on real fighters. However, if you're a hardcore fight fan nothing compares to actual footage of the sport's greatest champions.
Academy Award-winning documentary on Muhammad Ali and George Foreman's 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" in Kinshasa, Zaire. Director Leon Gast spent more than 20 years trying to bring this film to the screen -- his efforts were well worth the wait.
Fight footage and interviews with boxing greats Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes and Ken Norton. Fascinating look at the group of heavyweights who brought out the best in each other in the division's greatest era.
Worthwhile looks at the tough life, short championship reign and mysterious death of one of boxing's most feared fighters. Liston was to the early 60's what Mike Tyson was to the late 80's. A sad peek at the sport's corrupt underbelly.
Bruce Weber's black-and-white film follows Andy Minsker and the boys he coaches at a small boxing club outside Portland, Oregon. Good look at the sport away from the big-time professional spotlight.
A must for any fight fans who have never seen the original Sugar Ray, the man generally regarded as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of all-time. Includes great fight footage as well as commentary from Robinson, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Jack Dempsey, Max Schmeling and Gene Tunney.
