Mike Tyson - Tyson rose from a boyhood of dire poverty and crime to become the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history and one of the richest and most famous athletes on the planet. But no sooner had he reached the top of the professional ranks than everything started to fall apart. Two marriages came and went, his championship slipped away, and his career descended into a carnival of crooked promoters, femmes fatales, assaults, prison and, after winning more than $300 million in his career, bankruptcy. Even at the age of 40, Mike Tyson continued to fight to pay his bills. His fall is famous, but the reasons are as complex and misunderstood as Mike himself. This fascinating documentary looks at the man whose spectacular rise and fall has fascinated the world like that of no other.
Muhammad Ali – Champion of the Century – Ali was “The Champ”; arguably one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time and one of the most charismatic and recognisable personalities the sport has ever had to offer. Follow Ali from the beginning through to the heights of his career, with stunning footage of some of the best fights of his career. Watch him battle against Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, Henry Cooper, Floyd Patterson, Doug Jones and Chuck Wepner (the real Rocky Balboa) to name but a few. Ali was perhaps more famous out of the ring as he deployed his considerable personality to taunt his opponents and shamelessly boast of his own prowess. As a celebrity, he was larger than life. This programme is peppered with interviews and press conferences where you can watch as Ali exhibits his famous flair. This programme is a must have for any boxing fan.

Packed with fight footage and bursting with action, this DVD is a must have for any boxing fan.
