MAX SCHMELING: Max Schmeling’s clinical and studious approach in the ring, coupled with a deadly straight right with enormous stopping power, made him a force to be reckoned with around the world. See for yourself the power and skill that made Schmeling a worthy champion, with action from his controversial Title fights with the great Jack Sharkey, as well as the thrilling defence of his crown against ‘Young’ Stribling – a boxer who at the time had more Kos than any fighter in history. JOE LOUIS: Sit in with some of boxing’s greatest names as the life and legacy of Joe Louis, ‘The Brown Bomber’, are discussed and examined. Join the likes of George Foreman and former Muhammad Ali trainer Angelo Dundee in watching and analysing action from the man who many feel is the greatest heavyweight in history. Featuring action from his biggest clashes, including his first face-off with Germany’s Max Schmeling, decide for yourself if he really was the best there’s ever been. SUGAR RAY ROBINSON: Many boxers lay claim to greatness, but when a fighter is dubbed the greatest boxer in history by ESPN, it’s difficult to ignore. With a host of boxing experts on hand to analyse his incredible career, including his great rival Carmen Basilio, watch some of the most exciting bouts to have featured the man whose style was ‘as sweet as sugar’. Dominating the Welterweight and Middleweight divisions, Robinson was the first to be described as the ‘pound-for-pound’ best in the world. This amazing programme reveals why. ROCKY MARCIANO: Rocky Marcino’s reign at the peak of the Heavyweight Division, from 1952 to 1956, stands alone as one of the greatest achievements in all of sport. Not only did Marciano retire as an undefeated Champion, but by the end of his boxing career he was undefeated in ALL his professional fights. It was a record-breaking run that in all likelihood will never be topped. Observe his unstoppable rise to the top and the lengths to which he would have to go to remain there. SONNY LISTON: Stand back and admire the sheer force and punching power of ‘The Big Bear’, Sonny Liston, in this collection of his greatest ever Heavyweight displays. Few could stand toe-to-toe with Liston in his prime, and these 11 knockout bouts show exactly why he was such a force to be reckoned with. Includes action from both of his World Title fights with Floyd Patterson, as well as brutal first round KO’s of Albert Westphal, Wayne Bethea, Roy Harris and Dave Bailey. MUHAMMAD ALI: Join a distinguished panel of boxing’s elite in reviewing the highs and lows of a career spent in the spotlight, from his early years as Cassius Clay to his exile from boxing and beyond. Watch Ali’s greatest encounters, with some of his craftiest opponents on hand to provide expert analysis from the other side of the ring. Hear the truth behind the rumours as Ali’s legendary trainer Angelo Dundee spills the beans on life with the Champ, and experience every jab, uppercut and bodyshot from Ali’s epic fights against the likes of Sonny Liston, Henry Cooper, Joe Frazier and George Foreman. MIKE TYSON: The fury and passion of the raw, teenage Tyson was as inescapable as his devastating uppercut. Opponents facing this whirlwind of punching power had to ask themselves not only if they could beat him, but if they could even withstand the barrage Tyson threw at them in the first round. With twelve of his first sixteen fights ending in Round One knockouts, the mystique surrounding this force of nature grew with every bout.
