Default Dirtiest fights ever

I was just watching the second Hopkins vs. Echols fight with its many fouls (low blows, rabbit punching, a bodyslam, punches after the bell, hitting while complaining to the ref not a foul but very creative nonetheless ). It got me thinking, what were the dirtiest fights ever. Bowe vs. Golota comes to mind but that one was halted so it's obvious.

Anyone else? I feel like watching a dirty fight before bedtime

I had a thread earlier on entertaining foulfests. I'll go search for it.

Zivic-Davis was a beuty. Even after it was stopped Davis was trying to kick Zivic. Basically Zivic tried to blind Davis with his laces and Davis responded by punching Zivic in the balls until he was disqualified.

Alas, there is no footage, though you could perhaps track down the excellent radio broadcast.

That sounds like an entertaining bout

james butler vs richard grant
couldn't get to him in the fight so cheap shotted him after a show of sportsmanship from grant, pretty dirty in my book, however it wasn't entertaining.

That was very bad indeed, not exactly what I was looking for. Hopkins vs. Echols II was very entertaining despite being very dirty. Or perhaps because of it.

Holyfield-Tyson II wasn't very clean, two of the dirtiest fighters in boxing history fighting each other = foul fest. Tyson showed that his fouls were > Holyfield's fouls because of the bite, that will never be forgotten.

I recall Pacquiao/Sanchez being a fairly dirty one. The Hopkins/Echols fight is a trip. The best part is when Hopkins winds up his arm in the center of the ring after the body slam in order to loosen the shoulder.
