Recently, I have come down with this obsession with Lennox Lewis like never before.

In highschool when he fought Tyson, it was all that anyone was talking about. Even the girls were into it. I re-watched that fight a few weeks ago and that right hand that he dropped Tyson with was soo ****en awesome, it was slow but awesome. The overall power of that punch amazes me but not just the strength involved but more like a aura.

There are these shows around here where they throw 2 dudes in the ring with gloves on and let them go to town on each other for 3, 1 minutes rounds. It's not even close to being called boxing but its fun to watch yahoo's swing wildly then huff and puff when its over.

I'll have to check out some of the fights you guys mentioned to get me fired up for the 7th.

In Germany the only boxing fights are shown in tv are klitschko and a few half-german fighters(Felix Sturm, Arthur Abraham...). But the klitschkos are boring as hell. So, I dont know the rest of boxing. I only saw klitschko and sturm, who fights extremley defensive. Everytime I watch boxing I wish they would have smaller gloves. But I will check out a few of the fights you mentioned.

Watching Salvador Sanchez vs Castillo right now. Oh man, what a war. Cosell is just awful, but the action is so good, that he's easy to ignore.

You know who doesn't get any credit? Vinny Pazienza. Now, I know, he wasn't a master technician, but the guy brought it every time and has been in some great fights (The first fight with Haugen, first with Rosenblatt). He came back from a broken neck for crying out loud. I've never seen an uninspired Paz performance.

Lewis is my favourite HW of all time, since his retirement that division has sucked some major nuts.

I watched 90's boxing and it was pretty good...followed the british fighters, ya know...Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno, Chris Eubank, Naseem Hamed (entertaining as hell!)

The reason I stopped watching was because of all the politics around it, the matchups that shouldve happend that either

a. Never happend or
b. Happend to late (Jones Jr Vs Calzaghe in 2008? REALLY?!)

Speaking of Benitez, I loved his fight against Cervantes.

Aaron Pryor has never had a boring fight.
