Default Re: Recommend close fights to watch?

I'll throw out some older fights that will expose you to some fairly recent greats and a few different styles. There are a ton, but start with these:

Erik Morales/Marco Antonio Barrera 1 and 2 -- close and extremely entertaining.
Oscar de la Hoya/Felix Trinidad -- still debated to this day.
Larry Holmes/Michael Spinks 1 and 2, especially 2.
Arturo Gatti/Micky Ward 1 -- an absolute war. Fight of the Year 2002.
Miguel Cotto/Shane Mosely -- thrilling fight, very close.


Mayweather/Jose Luis Castillo 1 -- possibly Floyd's only loss. Judge for yourself.
