Awesome fight, remains my favorite to this day (Nelson vs Gomez is another personal favorite)...I have heard a few on here like the 2nd Arguello/Escalera fight better, but I have always been partial to the first.

Gatti-Ward. I would show this to them because it is a modern classic and then gradually work the classic gems in. I wouldn't start them on black and white footage.
