Exclamation ****decades surveys 1 - 2000-2009 survey closed - chart added****

What were the 10 best fights between 2000-2009?

The question is simply that.

Interpret "best" however you want, be it historical significance, entertainment value, or whatever.

This will be the first survey in a 9-part series, that will work downwards to the 1930-1939 period followed by a separate all-time fights survey.

Scoring will be the same as it was in the Weight Class surveys.

You just need to provide me with a list, 1-10, chronologically--NO TIES ALLOWED!

POINT ALLOCATIONS:
1st place = 25
2nd = 15
3rd = 12
4th = 10
5th = 8
6th = 5
7th = 4
8th = 3
9th = 2
10th = 1

PLEASE USE FIRST AND LAST NAME FOR BOTH FIGHTERS!!! EVEN IF IT'S OBVIOUS WHAT YOU MEAN!

It will make things very helpful for me to tabulate without confusion.

AND PLEASE MAKE SURE THE FIGHTS YOU LIST HAPPENED DURING THE PERIOD IN QUESTION

For example....

1. Arturo Gatti vs Mickey Ward 1
2. Marco Antonio Barrera vs Erik Morales 1
etc.

That's not necessarily the start of my list, as I need to give this some thought, but just to illustrate on how I'm hoping you'll cooperate to help me along.

We'll run them each for 30 days or so.

Ridiculous entries will be subject for exclusion from the official tally.



***If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

POLL DEADLINE: JANUARY 30, 2013 12:00am EST

Good list though.

Nice list! And quick!


I didn't think anyone would get around to it so quickly. I'm wondering if a Top 5 wouldn't be more realistic and easier on people (and perhaps me)?

If I did that, I could reallocate it:

1st - 25
2nd - 20
3rd - 15
4th - 10
5th - 5

Thoughts? Especially given you went through and made one?

Curious, as I'm considering that alteration before the ball gets rolling.

Agreed.

Let me know. Before I log off in the next couple of hours I'll make the call on 5 or 10.

Looks like that to me.

Which is EXACTLY WHY I ask that people write out the full names for both fighters, even when it's obvious. It's just something that in the long run will make things so much easier to calculate.

Just go with whatever is easiest on you, which would be 5, I'd guess.

I had no problem filling out the top 10 - loads of great fights in that decade. The only real issue was leaving out a few, and a top 10's probably better for that bit. Plus, I already went and made one.
