I know this fight is talked alot about here but Ezzard Charles vs Harold Johnson is one of my favrouites.

Hell,
Harold Johnson vs Doug Jones & Ezzard Charles vs Joe Louis, Lloyd Marshall II

Katsuo Tokashiki vs Lupe Madera I, II, III, IV are amazing
Guty Espadas vs Willy Jensen is also a really nice 10 rounder

I think Valdez-Briscoe II is still my favourite fight.

Cooper Mercer was amazing too. Bert's chin in that one really held up, suprisingly.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Frank Fletcher yet.

Good, good call.

His fights with Ernie Singletary and James Green were incredible. Then again, so was Hard Rock's battle with John "The Beast" Mugabi.

Moorer-Cooper was also a tremendous battle, for as long as it lasted.

This is the best thread on here in a while. I've watched a billion fights and haven't seen a good percentage of what is on here.

I am bookmarking this thread. Keep it going folks.

If the whole Romeo Anaya-Arnold Taylor fight exists, please someone let us know. That one was supposed to have been incredible. I've seen highlights on youtube, but that's all.
