For one off fights I'd say cotto v margarito. That was great to watch.

A fight series doesn't get much better than pac-jmm all 4 have been hard fought high skill contests.

March 8 1971.


It had it all ! Both Muhammad and Joe went way beyond the call of duty that night.

Chacon-Limon IV

Morales-Barrera I and Castillo-Corrales I were both good shouts, though.

Agreed. The greatest fight I've ever seen.

Arguello-Pryor I is also a fight I'd recommend to newcomers. Outrageous war.

I remember back in 1976 bringing an 8 mm film of some of Joe Louis's fight to high school. I was the only one into boxing and I brought 6 or 7 of my friend's to the school library to watch the film during lunch. The film showed highlights of Louis against M Baer, Buddy Baer, Simon and Walcott 2. All I remember hearing were the ohhs and ahhs from my friend's as Louis landed his machine gun like combinations. All became instantly Louis fans and a few to his day are hooked on boxing because of what they saw that day.
