One sided beatdowns by a skilled boxer are the best.

BTW I also find pure boxing boring as hell (e.g. Andre Ward). My favourite fighters to watch are Mayweather, Pacquaio, Khan, Brook, Price, Bellew. Anytime these guys are on I will definitely watch. I thought Martinez Chavez was a good fight also.
you prefer one sided uncompetitive fights? and there is defence in there trust me, there'll have been loads of subtle defence, sure they may take a lot of shots but your average pub brawlers could no way produce that type of action, theres a lot of skill involved in infighting like that and maybe the attitude that its unskilled is why its dying out? to me that was a really high level fight, theres more than one way to win a fight, too many people equate "skill" to boxing like andre dirrell, jab hold run jab hold run etc.

and you didnt like that fight but werent tempted to watch donaire nishioka?
