His ego alone wouldn't let him quit.
The same ego that let him once before acknowledge Joe as the better man on the night? (FOTC)

Perfect pick, I'll have to pick that too when I was going to pick Tyson vs Douglas.

It's far easier to give an adversary due credit when your hand is the one that was raised. Yeah, he's great, and I'm even greater for having beaten a great fighter.

Why the **** would you alter Benn vs. McClellan or Tyson vs. Douglas?

Yeah, I know what happened to McClellan was sad, but uh...Benn earned that W fair and square. (and, let's not allow the tragedy to cause us to lose sight, he was kind of a better person...)

As for Tokyo...even if you're a massive Tyson fan you have to realize what an epic and pivotal moment in boxing history that was. **** the excuses. If you were given a magic wand and were about to use it to take that win away from Douglas...I'd take the wand away from you and ram it sideways up your crapper.

Obviously, as a huge Cotto fan, I would change the outcome of Cotto/Mayweather. It would have given my favorite fighter of this era a legitimate ATG win and altered his legacy. He would be known as the guy who beat the unbeatable rather than a guy whose career was likely altered due to Margo's wraps.

Historically, I would change Ali/Frazier III. I've always been more of a Frazier guy. I come from a blue collar background and think it would have been great to have Frazier win the rubber match of that rivalry.

How about you?

Leonard - Hearns 1 - If only Tommy had enough left in him to see out the 14th and 15th rounds. It's painful watching that ending

Jackson - Graham - Bomber Graham was an incredible fighter, he really deserved to win a world title and should have.

My post was purley hypothetical. I understand it would have been unlikely.

Great post.
I was gonna say the same fight plus Eubank vs Watson.
But the one that stands out in my mind was Duk Koo Kim vs Ray Mancini..so many bad things came out from this fight, yet there was still room for a ray of light with rule changes.

R.I.P Duk Koo Kim

Margarito v Mosley....Unusual choice i know, im glad he got a ****in pasting off Mosley in hindsight but at the time Margarito was my joint fave fighter and the whole revelation that he wasnt the unstoppable hardworking underdog i had built him up as and he was just a cheat really pissed me off and soured me on the sport at the time.

Couple of others stick out, would change marquez v pacquiao 3,Abril v Rios, Mathysse v Alexander, cox v sai and ***ton v Bayaar...give the W to the person who earned em.
no matter what the outcome, it looks good on juan's resume
