I agree, but didn't want to make this 7 great fights...Plus I am a big Minter fan/appreciator....Love Minter/Antuofermo I (2 is ok too) as well, Sugar Ray Seales & Hamsho (Nice southpaw action, but always thought Minter deserved the decision/was robbed....might need to rewatch this one.).

I watched that one just yesterday for the first time; I wrote it up in the "What fights did you watch today" thread, and had it 5-4-1 for Hamsho.

Well, let's just say you have something in common with Reg Gutteridge.

It's not a classic for the ages, but Chisora vs Sam ***ton II was a decent heavyweight scrap between two relatively evenly matched up and comers. Lots of back and forth action for a modern heavyweight fight, and a fair bit of drama ending in a knockout.

I am excited there are several fights I have not seen and a few I have not heard of
Cheers. Haven't been on much recently. How about Mancini- Kim?

Miranda vs Pavlik is a nice little scrap that I don't see mentioned enough. A little one sided, but there are stretches where it's almost non-stop punching. Massive bombs thrown by both men.

Michael Katsidis vs Czar Amonsot was another great scrap, as was Jorge Arce vs Hussein Hussein.

Carl Thompson vs Ezra Sellers had knockdowns galore. God, what a punch Sellers had.
