Default WHY are certain matchups so fascinating to us?

I notice that some matchups--Ibeabuchi vs. some other top guy, Tyson vs. Marciano, Foreman vs. Tyson, Fitzsimmons vs. Greb, Louis vs. Foreman are discussed quite frequently.

What is it about these matchups that is more intriguing to us than, say, Jimmy Young vs. Young Stribling?

BONUS: Can you think of other matchups that pop up frequently, and guess why they are interesting as well?

Cross Trainer--would you pay to see Young and Stribling? Talk about an ugly one! I think I could fall asleep just thinking about it.

It would be very interesting to watch, although it would be sleep-inducing to most boxing fans....the contrast in eras and careers between the two men is alone enough to encourage me to watch.

Tyson vs Ali

Because they are in the eyes of many, the most entertaining boxers in history.
