Default ESB desert island discs

Like on the popular radio programe the scenario in this thread is you are marooned on a desert island and must choose certain posesions to take with you.

You can take with you a solar powered DVD player and DVDs of any seven filmed fights. In adition you may bring one boxing related book and one peice of memerobilia.

So-

Seven fights

One book

One peice of memerobila

What would you choose.

Sanchez - Gomez (Battle of the little giants)
Super Greg Page - Coetzee (Destiny fulfilled!)

Book

In the Corner: Great Boxing Trainers Talk About Their Art

Memorabilia

The gloves Tommy wore in the Duran fight, signed personally.
