Nearly 10 hours of ALI greatness.....nothing less than 5 sta

"Okay...there have been a smattering of ALI DVDs out over the years...
but this is now officially the big dog of them all weighing in at nearly 10 hours of content. This I believe was shown on ESPN. They have commentators talking about each fight and so we don't just have a long line of boxing footage but we also have the press conferences around the fights just wonderful footage for a fan of ALI like myself. The bonus (4th) DVD ,3 plus hours itself!, concentrates on the relationship of ALI and Howard Cosell and ABC's Wide World Of Sports...and alone is a gem worth the price of this set. Its really a single source treasure trove of ALI footage and it all is looking as good as I've ever seen it. Aside from the classic fights we've seen over and over...Liston,Frazier,Foreman...we get many other early fights and later ones..15 fights in total!
the only thing NOT first class is the idiotic container..they've stacked ALL 4 DVDs on top of each other on a single post...which is just asking for trouble and really cheap ...considering the price of this set really tacky.
ESPN does it again!! Ringside rocks

"I am a huge boxing fan and have watched all the Ringside shows on ESPN Classic--the Ali show is so thorough--tons of fights, newsreel outtakes with Ali and of course the great commentary from Bert Sugar, host Brian Kenny and their 'who's who' parade of guests--Angelo Dundee; Chuck Wepner, George Chuvalo, D. Ferdie Pacheco..this is a must-have time capsule of Ali's entire career --the Production value is ESPN Top shelf and the gym that they shoot it in looks great---the Ali pre and fight press conferences alone will make you laugh..Ali was priceless...
When will the Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano shows be available ESPN???"
