Default What 2 ATG'S throughout history would have made the most exciting fight? Most boring?

I think Tyson vs 70's Foreman would have been one of the most exciting h2h's.


Most boring will probably be


Current Wladimir vs Prime Larry Holmes would probably had been a god damn awful fight with Larry winning most of the rounds in the most boring way possible.

Holmes v Lewis would be fascinating i reckon.

Tyson v Frazier would be a good tear up.

IMO, these are the fights I believe would be so exciting had it happened:

Chavez vs Arguello at 130

Dempsey vs Marciano

I'm still thinking of a lot more.

On the boring side, I think Floyd-Whitaker at 135 would be a defensive fiesta.

Tough to call. Any historical great in action would be amazing to watch.

A battle of the Sugars at WW would be compelling. There may be more action-packed fights on paper, but it would be a fascinating duel as in addition to their physical gifts they had ATG intangibles and ability to adjust in a fight.

Chavez-Duran at LW would be incredible.

Armstrong-Pryor at 140 would probably set new punchstat records.

I wouldn't call them ATG's, but Winky Wright v Marlon Starling would have been boring as ****.
