Favourite fight of all time - Rocky Marciano vs "jersey" joe walcott - absolute war with a 13th round knock out.

Really stopped watching in recent times though not since the tyson years have i followed boxing properly.

Duran vs Leonard 1. Roberto Duran at his best. He just sucks Leonard in and makes him fight his fight. Leonard, to his credit, fought well, but you can't brawl with Roberto.

Duran vs Barkley. Huge upset, as the old Roberto beats Barkley, who was a monster. Roberto was all crafty here, and had the crowd's support. Awesome fight.

Mickey Ward vs Burton. I liked this way better than any Gatti vs Ward fight.

Ken Norton vs Ali 3. Norton got screwed over, but it was still a great fight, with Ken being all surly and shit.

Wilfred Benitez vs Sugar Ray Leonard. You want to see a technical fight? Watch this. Benitez was a really great counter puncher. Too bad he couldn't pull it off.

Hagler vs Duran. 2 of the toughest badasses to ever walk the earth punch each other in the face a lot.

There's so much more, but that's all I can think of right now.

Roy vs Hopkins was a total borefest, too. Seriously, what a boring fight.

Roy vs Malinga wasn't boring, but it was freakin' frustrating, with the ref whiping up the ring constantly.


Pryor vs Arguello 1 and Arguello vs Boom Boom Mancini were awesome, awesome fights. Seriously, if you haven't seen Pryor vs Arguello 1, then you're missing out.
