King of The Ring (Rare Documentary)

Within the embedded player below, you will find a rare documentary that features several legendary boxers from the past. For fighters and trainers of the modern era, it is important to study the greats who came before you. There is always something to learn from former greats.

Furthermore, I wanted to share the following Youtube channel. It was recently emailed to me. Within the channel, you will find loads of full length documentaries. Boxing aficionados could literally spend all day watching the footage contained within.

  1. Thanks for the info on the Youtube channel. See they had a short clip featuring the gatekeeper of the heavyweight division in the 1960’s aka George Chuvalo. Chuvalo and his granite chin were often used as a measuring stick on whether you had the goods to move up to the big boys of the division. If you made it past Chuvalo you were ready for the top 4-5 heavyweights, if not time to go back to work. There is/was an excellent documentary on the first Ali/Chuvalo fight on Youtube called “The Last Round” and really gives you an indept profile of Chuvalo and his training for the Ali title bout. Fought such super punchers as Foreman, Frazier, Oscar Bonavena, Cleveland Williams and was never knocked down in his long career, although he did suffer a controversial slip in the Bonavena bout.

  2. AWESOME!!! Just goes to show that strength and power don’t have to diminish with age if you’re willing to work at it.

  3. Kings of the ring is a fantastic documentary,I remember recording the programme when it was shown here in the UK, think i’ve still got the video somewhere. Thanks for the rest of the info.
