Recently?

Katsidis vs Burns

Had no real reason to be but the general perception was that Katsidis was being brought over to do a number on Burns. Couldn't sit still when watching the fight. Pacing up and down the living room. Only really settled down midway through the fight when i realised that Burns was bossing Katsidis.

Other notables include Hatton vs Mayweather. Primarly because of the job Sky did in the build up. You couldn't escape coverage of the fight anywhere on Sky during fight week.

The first fight between Truscott/Simpson, first live fight I went to and was an absoloute war. TV wise most excited would be Froch/Bute, Hatton/Mayweather and Groves/DeGale mainly due to the final press conference.

Lewis - Tyson, naz fights when I was a kid. Since ive followed it pretty closely are Hatton - may weather (no explanation needed really), burns - Martinez ,genuinely didn't think it would happen when it was announced for PR, but when it moved to Scotland and was definitely on I got majorly excited too see a scot fight for a world title again) and Haye - Klitschko even though I predicted a boring shut out I got sucked in to the hype.

Only other fights I've been majorly excited about were Jones - Calzaghe, Burns - Katsidis. I tend not to get too excited about particular fights and the ones I do enjoy are usually the ones that take me by surprise.

Hatton - Mayweather is the reason I watch boxing. Everyone was talking about it, I doubt we'll ever get a build up like that ever again.

Then cotto - margo 2. I wanted cotto to win so much, I felt sick before the fight when they were just about to ring the bell haha.

Probably Hatton v Mayweather, the hype for that fight was just ridiculous. Eubank v Benn II isn't far behind.
