The trend here seems to be to favour fights in colour.

I would have thought that Dempsey Willard or Dempsey Firpo might make a lot of lists.

Funnily enough, Dempsey-Firpo was my first choice, but I figured I'd have too many heavyweight fights there. Besides Foreman-Lyle, I chose fights that were fairly long and where the action see-sawed a lot.

I like the little guys, so:

Barney Ross vs. Tony Canzoneri II
Henry Armstrong vs. Lou Ambers II
Jose Napoles vs. Emile Griffith
Fighting Harada vs. Eder Jofre I
Roberto Duran vs. Ray Leonard I
Salvador Sanchez vs. Azumah Nelson
Pernell Whitaker vs. Julio Cesar Chavez

As for a book, anything that covers the early years of the sport in great detail would be interesting to look over.

Memorabilia isn't really important to me, whatever will do.
