Default Re: Unknown/Forgotten Great Fights

Ruben Olivares v Kazuyoshi Kanazawa is one I watched recently and a real classic with some great toe-to-toe action and ebb & flow throughout the fight.

Juan laPorte v Ruben Castillo has a great atmosphere at Roberto Clemente stadium in San Juan and is a forgotten classic. great fight.

Tony Lopez v Juan Molina III is also excellent (how many great fights was Tony the Tiger in?)

Julio Cesar Chavez v Mario Martinez at the Olympic for the vacant 130lb title was an out and out war fought mainly on the ropes with both guys just letting it all hang out - one of the best Chavez fights and always great to see the young warrior at work.

Ken Norton v Jose Luis Garcia II - some seriously heavy shots landed in this one with Garcia content to stay on the ropes and trade with Norton who was more than obliging. Apparently their first fight exists on tape - anyone confirm this?

George Foreman v Alex Stewart doesn't get talked about all that much but was hugely entertaining and who can forget George pausing mid-round to talk to the press behind the ropes only to get nailed by Stewart - didn't seem to worry Big George too much but he looked like a cabbage patch doll by the end of that one.
