Default Re: Best Trilogy Fight of All time?

Can't pick between Ali-Frazier, Bowe-Holyfield, and Barrera-Morales.

Ali-Frazier had 2 classics, I have both FOTC and Thrilla in my top 10, but the rematch was pretty crappy. Barrera-Morales had 1 classic in the first fight, the rubber match was very good, and the 2nd fight was okay. Nothing special, but a close competitive bout and certainly better than the second Ali-Frazier fight. All 3 bouts in Bowe-Holyfield were very good, but none quite at the level of Barrera-Morales 1, or Ali-Frazier 1 and 3. Also not evenly matched to the extent of Barrera-Morales.

If not for the fourth fight, Vazquez-Marquez would be my #1 trilogy.

Gatti-Ward was good, the first bout is a classic, but too one-sided as a trilogy. Gatti shut Ward out in the 2nd bout and won the final bout 8-2 despite a broken hand.
