Not even that far back. The Paul Pender situation. Cuevas and Palomino never facing off. TV deal meaning Yuh and Chang never faced off. Floyd and Pacquiao is heinous because we're living it, but look at the lower weights from the 80s onwards especially, and it's actually quite stressful taking it all in.
