There's really too many worthy of mention.

How about Ezzard Charles going 5-0 against Moore and Burley.

Don't get me going on this before. It's a good win but to consider it anywhere near the best of all time considering Gans had a fight the day before and lost. What the **** is it between us? we always seem to clash in threads

However Foreman-Frazier rates very highly for me, as does Frazier-Ali.
RJJ-Toney will always be a personal favourite, because if the sheer domination Roy showed that night. Also if Whitaker had been given the decision, which he clearly deserved against JCC then that would be right up there as well.

Schmeling KO12 Louis is probably the best answer, certainly at heeavyweight.

Holmes's best win was over Mercer, you say? Seriously??? Not over Norton, Cooney, or Shavers #1 (or #2)? But freaking MERCER??

And Ali beating Foreman . . . well, Ali has said Liston #1 was his best win.

Douglas over Tyson, I'll give you that. Just the biggest upset in sports history over an undefeated ATG heavyweight. Ok, no problem there.

Do you follow any division other than heavyweights?

Considering Duran's ATG status and the fact that no one else ever came close to demolishing him the way that Hearns did, not even when he was in his forties, Hearns KO of Duran is surely amongst the greatest wins ever.

Duran had some amazing wins of his own, of course, the Leonard and Barkley fights were spectacular.

Saddler-Pep, even if one of them was found half dead in a plane wreckage not long before. Remember he also boasted a record of 135-1-1.

Barkley's wins over Hearns were also impressive, I still can't believe that he managed to do it twice.

The Roberto Duran win was a great win for Thomas Hearns mainly because he knocked out a fellow legend who was also a fellow champion of the WBA at 154 pounds when Tommy was WBC champ. The Cuevas,Benitez and Hill wins are all classic in their own rights.
