Bogus bonus features and old familiar footage

"I bought this product new, sealed with both tape and shrink wrap. However, two of the bonus features listed on the jacket simply do not exist on the DVD. Specifically, the Ernie Terrell and Jerry Quarry fights are missing. The Cleveland Williams and Henry Cooper matches are included as advertised. Perhaps just my copy is defective? But you're playing Russian roulette if you're counting on the extras. The two bonus interviews are familiar stuff and not much longer than soundbites. The footage of Earnie Shavers vs. Ali is good, but slight, perhaps thirty seconds of the final round. Most of the other footage is very familiar to collectors of Muhammad Ali DVDs and VHS. I recommend "Muhammad Ali, The Whole Story" for real fans and boxing buffs."
The Bonus fights make this a Bargain!

""Ali's Dozen" highlights 12 significant rounds in the career of Muhammad Ali, from his Olympic Gold medal winning effort at the 1960 Olympics to his gutsy 15th round rally to win a close decision over Earnie Shavers in their 1977 battle at Madison Square Garden in New York.
But this 45 minute documentary also includes hours and hours of bonus features. It has the 1966 battle between Ali and Ernie Terrell in its entirety. It has all 15 rounds, the conversations between rounds, and post fight interviews. It is the closed circuit telecast, not one of those grainy Jim Jacobs films.
Moreover, you get Ali-Quarry I and Ali Williams in their entirety (courtesy of the aforementioned Jacobs and Cayton), plus highlights of Ali vs Zora Folley, his last fight before being exiled from boxing for 3 1/2 years.
You also get interviews with Angelo Dundee, Mort Sharnik, and Jerry Izenberg. A must have dvd for Ali fans!"

"For Ali fans, this is a must. Great fight summaries and tbe bonus fights with Cleveland Williams, Zora Foley, Terrell, and Quarry are worth the price of the CD.
One of the reviewers commented that some of the bonus material is missing. Its actually on but is easy to miss: On selecting "Bonus" from the DVD Main Menu, you are brought to a window with ONLY two of the bonus fights and the option to click . Turns out that the ">" to the right of is equivalent to "next" and selecting it moves you to a new window where the other bonus fights are displayed (Terrell, Quarry). ""
