I never want to see Pryor in anything he did after Arguello II. Nor do I want to see Pryor-Arguello II again. (The image of Alexis punching the deck in defeat as he takes the final count might be disturbing to Pryor himself.)

Curry-Starling I. The Magic Man's non effort in that one made me want to tear my hair out. Ditto for Dwight Davison against Sibson. Also for Berbick's sleep walk against S.T. Gordon. Walking tank jobs drive me nuts. Bonehead Smith did this with both Bruno and Tyson. Yes, he knocked Bruno out in the final round, but he should have been disqualified by Harry Gibbs for not trying long before that happened.

SRL-Duran II is something I've only seen brief clips of. I've never seen SRL-Duran III, and I'm not sure I want to see Laing-Duran again. SRL-Hagler is another I'll take a pass on.

Louis-Schmeling II, Armstrong-Ross, Joppy-Duran and the possible trashing Hopkins may get if he fights on too long are the fights I never watch. Don't like seeing my heroes gettin' trashed

I've never watched;

Ali - Holmes & Berbick
Duran - Laing, Joppy & Leonard III
Chavez - Wise & Wiley

I have all these fights in my collection but I just can't bring myself to watch them and I doubt I ever will.

There are a few fights I've only watched once and definitely won't watch again (I won't include all the terribly boring fights I've seen - just the ones I won't watch again because they feature some of my favourite fighters in a way I'd rather not remember them);

Tito - Winky
Morales - Raheem & Pacquiao III
RJJ - Tarver I, II & III, Johnson & Calzaghe

I didnt cry when I saw Holmes thrash Ali. It was bad, but perhaps because I didnt come from around that era.

I though Louis put up a good accout for himself vs Marciano. It was not the worse beating Louis took, he took a far worse one in 1936.

I have never/will never watch and fight where a fighter was killed or maimed.

Curiosity has always compelled me to watch my favourite fighters worst losses but never twice.

Valuev/Holyfield.
Who knows mabey someday I will make myself watch it but I am not looking forward to watching that based on all acounts Holyfield won because he was slightly less bad than Valuev.

ones that I have seen and have upset me

Randolp Turpin against Sugar Ray Robinson II and Bolo
Joe Frazier against Muhammad Ali III and George Foreman I & II
Evander Holyfield against Riddick Bowe III, Lennox Lewis I, John Ruiz and James Toney
Benny Lynch against Aurel Toma
Thomas Hearns against Iran Barkley I & II,
Mike Tyson against Kevin McBride, Danny Williams and Lennox Lewis
Muhammad Ali against Berbick and Holmes
Roberto Duran against William Joppy and Thomas Hearns
Roy Jones against Calzaghe
Marco Antonio Barrera against Amir Khan
Sugar Ray Robinson against Paul Pender 1 & 2
Jack Johnson against Jess Willard
Joe Louis against Rocky Marciano

I'm only 18 by the way so I did not see the majority of these live but even watching them on tape still upsets me.

My problem with the Marciano fight isn't so much that he gets beaten up; it's that he couldn't defend himself like he used to. And he shouldn't even have been in there. Where's the dignity in that? He is supposed to have even told his accountants to have paid the original tax bill...the whole thing just reeks.

All for very obvious reasons.

What's wrong with Camacho leonard? I watch it all the time. It is a testimony to Hector's killer instinct and Ray's fragility.

Also, DLH - Chavez is brilliant when you look at the last round DLH unleashing combos in a red blur, forcing a stoppage. Boxing at its best

I never watched Owen/Pintor...

There always used to be an unwritten rule amongst broadcasters and fans that a fight that involves serious injury or death is never shown (again).

It is sad that another (classy) rule of classic boxing has gone the toilet...

One fight I watched which I never want to watch again is Eddie Machen vs Ingemar Johannson. Sickening, the referee was appaling.
