Still, that said, Cotto is definitely above the level of Ward and Gatti, and Torres perhaps level (time will tell). Was a very good fight. I thought this was still the worse fight of Cottos career from a technical standpoint. He got over confident in this one.

Hasim Rahman v Mario Cawley

A true barnburner

Hasim has so much power the mere breeze from his punches floored Cawley 2 times in the second round. And how about that blistering jab that finished the show?

Hands down best fight of the past 10:

Vasquez/Marquez 2 was good, but the drama wasn't there, and the end was good, but almost anti-climatic compared to the action in the ring, it needed one more comeback from Marquez to really be considered with Corrales/Castillo 1.

I liked both of them. IMO the fights were equally the same, Tomasz winning both. I think overall, Tomasz did better the second fight, despite the Knock Down, imo he was controlling that round (1), but I scored that round 10-9 Briggs couse of the KO. Both were fantastic fights.

Thx....the list is from a few months ago, so I probably have to do some updating.
