Re: Recommend close fights to watch?
Micky Ward-Emanuel Burton Augustus: great fight, the official scoring was way too one-sided for the New Englander (the fight was in New Hampshire). Burton did WAY better than the official scores said.
Chad Dawson-Glen Johnson 1: the 2nd fight was dull, the 1st fight was exciting. Some people thought Dawson won clearly but I don't agree.
David Tua-Ike Ibeabuchi- close fight with all kinds of leather thrown. Their workrates were insane.
Ivan Robinson-Arturo Gatti 1: very close fight, great action. It's equal to or better than Gatti-Ward 1 IMO. Although none of the rounds are quite like Gatti-Ward round 9, the fight is more consistent all the way through in its action.
Robert Quiroga-Kid Akeem Anifowoshe- tragedy occurred for both guys later on, but this was a terrific fight. Hometown decision IMO.
