That's an interesting pick, care to explain it? Not that you need to, it's your list, just wondering why you loved it so much?

You know what I nearly put up? Solis v Viloria. Out of the blue. Than I remembered abotu Fuji-Locche, which is my all time favourite schooling.

I thought it was a very good fight, back and forth, high drama...Looked like Pavlik was gonna be blasted out in two rounds, then comes back to stop the champ...the rematch was a snoozefest, but I rather enjoyed the first fight...did you not?

Yeah, it was a good one. But I could name many fights I thought were better. Then again, loads of guys would say the same thing about Lopez-Preecha, which was one of my picks. It's all what you like your own self, isn't it?

Indeed. Obviously the list isn't set in stone, for instance I left out Duran/Leonard I, Ali/Frazier I and III, and so on...If I did this 10 times I'd probably have 10 different lists...
