    I was watching Ali v. Chuvalo last night on ESPNC and was wondering if there is a Muhammad Ali: The Complete Fights set or anything like that.

    I wish there was. The best dvd available is The Greatest Collection which collects three of them: the first Liston fight, Africa, and Manila.

    I'd pay good money to see Ali VS Norton.

    DVDs are way behind in the sports department. There are many who would pay for classic fights, however, it would be near impossible to cut through all the red tape involving rights fees to put boxing matches on DVD for sale. For instance, boxers in the 80s fought on CBS, NBC, ABC, HBO, pay-per-view channels...to compile a best of Duran, or best of Mancini DVD would be impossible. Don't know if I'm breaking rules here, but I'm sure you're aware that there are numerous retailers out there selling boxing compilation DVDs.
