Walcott-Charles series - I mean it's Charles and Walcott
Holyfield-Tyson - both upper echelon in offensive skill, great countering display by Holyfield
Lewis-Holyfield 1&2 - again great offensive skill from both men
Norton-Holmes
Ali-Norton 3
Marciano-Walcott - Marciano is really very skilled in his own style
Ali-Patterson - underrated win for Ali, although Floyd's back does go, the initial skill on show are of a very high level

I can't believe I forgot those two, especially given that they're two of my favourite boxers and the first fight is one of my favourite fights. The first fight was Lewis's most skilled performance.

Ah, but the thread starter asked for title fights.

I'd vote for Charles-Walcott II as the most skilled ever.

For me,its the outstanding candidate
What about post number 3? You know? Frazier-Ali I?

Poor Frazier. His name can never be marquee.

Anyway, this fight should be the correct answer.

Think it has to be Bowe-Holyfield II or FOTC.
