Default Fights you'll never watch

Like i'll never watch Marciano thrash Louis, and i'll never watch the fatal Parrett-Grifith fight. What others are there?

Wladimir Klitschko v Sultan Ibragimov. I watched the first round and a half, and that's it.

Paret-Griffith I haven't see

Muhammad Ali vs Larry Holmes
Muhammad Ali vs Trevor Berbick
Mike Tyson vs Danny Williams
Julio Cesar Chavez vs Kosta Tyszu
Julio Cesar Chavez vs Oscar De La Hoya I & II
Roberto Duran vs William Joppy
Sugar Ray Leonard vs Hector Camacho

All for very obvious reasons.

I have no problem watching idols get thrashed. Case in point, the fight whose spirit is so well captured in Addie's signature there is the centerpiece of my DVD collection. My Tapia love far exceeds my Barrera love, and while he didn't quite get Naseemed he was most certainly thrashed and while vulnerably past his prime. Yet it's delicious stuff.

Sadistic streak?

Tapia was spirited in getting thoroughly outclassed by the bigger and fresher man though. Ali vs Holmes is entirely different kettle of fish, and I dare anyone to sit through it and actually enjoy what they are watching.

I don't puss out...... Even if my boy gets whipped.............. I still insist upon doing a review..............

But fights that I thought sucked that ticked me off were: "Leonard-Duran 3" and "DLH-Trinidad." Its hard to review that crap..........

I wish I had never seen Joe Calzaghe vs Roy Jones Jr, but despite vowing not to watch it, I caved at the last minute, and now wish I hadn't.

I wish I hadn't watched Haye v Valuev either, because all of the positive comments about Haye's excellent and intelligent boxing performance have really annoyed me. If I hadn't watched the fight, I would have been very pleased at hearing this news, as I do like David Haye. But having seen the fight, I'm highly pissed off at the misrepresentations going on.

The only fight I can think of that I have never seen and never want to see is Holmes-Ali. Oh, and Duran vs William Joppy.

Larry Holmes-Tex Cobb...it's pointless...and it's most significant aspect is the retirement from boxing afterwards of Howard Cosell.
