Has anyone seen this video? I see where it came out on DVD a few weeks ago and wondered if it was worth getting. I cant see where they could get much action of 45 fights on 1 DVD but ya never know.

why would they have a DVD of that???

The Century is only 6 years old.

Came out last year Greek.

The DVD has a terrible interface/menu, and 45 innacurate, very random bios, but it has allot of rare footage none the less.

I'll go through the notables

It has the ko clips of Firpo vs. Willard and Brennan. Tunney clips vs. Gibbons, Carpentier, Dempsey I + II, and Heeney.

Has a clip from the B Leonard/Lew Tendler fight (very short).

Virtually the whole Marciano Mathews fight. Louis clips vs. Levinsky, M Baer, Godoy, Walcott I plus a few others.

Clips of Jack Sharkey vs. Maloney/Dempsey. Max Baer clips vs. Carnera, Schmeling, Galento (very silly).

Some others, I'll check later.

just CLIPS?????

They could have put more than clips.

But Benny vs Lew may sound great, how short is that clip??

I saw pass prime Benny vs Jimmy Mclarnin.

Never knew they had prime footage.

The clip of the above fight is approx 2 min on this DVD.

I recently bought the video at Wal-Mart. It was in the 2 for $11.00 bin. If anyone wants it, check the local Wal-Mart.

Thanks guys,
If I can get it at Wal mart for 2 for 11 dollars I guess it has to be worth it.

I have three tapes of this particular compilation.
It also has clips of schmeling-walker, ross-petrolle, and ross-mclarnin. They are all just clips though.
