Ezzard Charles v Jersey Joe Walcott would have to be a right up there in terms of reputation of the fighters for skill. Although Charles Maxim might be another one where there was two highly skilled fighters, if not necessarilly the highest ever classed fighters.

Ali v Frazier is an obvious one, I think, no matter which way you look at it.

Schmelling Louis would have been a great chance but obviously Louis' performance meant schmelling didnt really get a chance to show his skills.

Tunney Dempsey is another, despite Jack's ring rust costing him dearly, there was still great skills being shown.
