Mr Calzaghe. Joe Calzaghe, Welsh boxing hero is show cased in this documentary about his rise from shy, bullied school kid to fighting through the boxing ranks to be the man he is now. It’s well made and the 94 minutes go very quickly. It includes interviews with the man himself, his father / trainer -Enzo and his sisters as well as (to my surprise) Hollywood fan Michael J Fox. There is plenty of ringside boxing footage of his career including the biggies and a nice and somewhat entertaining interview with Chris Eubank breaking down his fight with the Welshman.
Joe comes off well as a humble, down to earth man but not lacking in confidence in his own abilities. The magic comes from Joe’s action rather than his interviews. Enzo makes up for this by having a lot to say! Luckily, Enzo is funny and entertaining enough to listen throughout. Watching this and all of Joe’s achievements make you proud to be Welsh.
