Default Best bill of boxing you have watched live?

In terms of every fight on the bill being well matched and entertaining.

Does not nessary have to be world class action just good fights.

Live, in person?

Toss up.

Sitting a few rows back for the Contender season 3 finale was a lot of fun, not just for the FOTY candidate main event (Bika vs. Codrington) but really the whole night:

...but the show down at the MSG Little Theater was solid up and down as well:

I had purchased tickets because of the anticipated Odlanier Solis vs. Kevin Johnson main event and was bitterly disappointed when Johnson pulled out for his Klitschko shot and was replaced with Monte Barrett - yet still wound up enjoying the action quite a bit. Mtagwa vs. Lopez was epic, and Duddy turned in a typical performance, Pawel Wolak struggled a bit to put away his Brazilian, Diaz kayoing Barthelemy, Gamboa putting on his display...all great to see up close.

Emoticons? They are working fine.

Perhaps you clicked something by mistake in user settings and disabled them?

Iv'e got a few but the best bill was probably the Magnificent 7 bill in Birmingham i went to in 2010.
You had...
Nathan Cleverly-Karo Murat
Dereck Chisora-Sam ***ton
Enzo Maccarinelli-Alexander Frenkel
Kell Brook-Michael Jennings
Matthew Macklin-Some European guy (Darren Barker pulled out)
Matthew Hall-Lukas Konecny
James DeGale-Carl Dilks
They were all title fights and Frankie Gavin was on the bill as well.

I went to the David Haye-Enzo Maccarinelli fight at the o2 in London. That was some night as well were you had Kevin Mitchell fight Carl Johannson in a brilliant fight on the undercard.
And when Mike Tyson fought Lou Savarese at Hampden park. Junior Witter fought Zab Judah for the title on the undercard.

The best I went to was with hindsight Bruno/Smith and Kaylor/Drayton.

The best bill I saw live on TV was probably Revenge: The Rematches.

Mag 7 is a great shout. That was memorable even for a Yank watching on a tiny browser screen.

To be there with that much competitively matched action, the atmosphere...can only imagine.

i was there it was great, shame the main event got changed though. That and Ortiz va Maidana are the only 2 shows I've ever been too which is a shame. Maidana beating Ortiz in that war was epic, the sound of the shots and the gasps of the crowd were something else.

Ironically Broner was on the under card, didn't know him back then.

Groves Degale was a good night.

Full card, decent match ups and good fights.

Only problem was the amount of tossers fighting in the crowd
