Naked Sport: Welcome to the Sewer (Outstanding boxing documentary - 1992)
Published on May 5, 2013
This rarely seen but brilliant PBS documentary candidly shows the reality of the darker side of professional boxing. Made in 1992, it closely follows the career of a young Shannon Briggs and features fascinating and honest interviews with Evander Holyfield, Larry Holmes, Teddy Atlas, the late Dan Duva, Kathy Duva, Lou Duva, Bobby Czyz, Bob Arum, Mike Marley with an appearance from the Greatest himself, Muhammad Ali.
For any serious fan of boxing, this is seriously not to be missed! Ripped from an old VHS copy, apologies for the slightly ropey quality in places.
