“I got the Blu-ray for Christmas.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you are a fan of boxing or Calzaghe you should watch this. No debate about that. Boxing is not the same anymore.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat said there is nothing really surprising about this documentary.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt focuses a lot on the father/son relationship. You see Enzo talking about how he gave up his music and became a trainer.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe 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).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt 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 Joeu0026#39;s own mouth. We did not get enough of his inner thoughts. Who is Joe Calzaghe as a person?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOh those little cute kids of his? Not so little anymore. Time flies…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe 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. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTime to end this review. Final verdict. You gotta have it! You know you do!”
