Yes Mr Bill I was thrilled when Duran beat Moore. At the time i thought Duran was done and Duran is my All time favorte. Back to best fights as a young fan Chacon/Limon was the first real life Rocky fight i ever saw and ive seen many great fights since then but that one will always be in my mind and HEART!

I'm a 'Duran' psycho....... No shame at all.......... Benny Leonard at 135, yeah, he can eat his heart out.................. Duran is my man at 135 and beyond............. Peace...

1. Marco Antonio Barrera vs Erik Morales I
Two prime, great Mexican warriors going toe to toe for 12 rounds during their respective primes. As good as this game gets, as good as sports gets...period.

2. Alexis Arguello vs Aaron Pryor I
Wonderful clash of styles, Pryor lands his flurries, Alexis lands the odd bomb that would render any ordinary fighter out unconscious. An opening round to rival Hagler/Hearns.

3. Diego Corrales vs Jose Luis Castillo I

In-fighting at its most brutal, both fighters landing with regularity, with one of the most dramatic, come from behind stoppages in Boxing history.

4. Yaqui Lopez vs Saad Muhammad II
Even better than the original, furious ebb and flow, with Saad weathering the storms, and coming back with hard shots of his own. Great, competitive, slugfest.

5. Roberto Duran vs Iran Barkley
A beautiful performance by the old veteran, landing right hands at will, overcoming insurmountable odds to dethrone the much bigger, fresher, champion in Iran Barkley.

HM: Aturo Gatti vs Ivan Robinson 1, Bert Cooper vs Michael Moorer, Michael Carbajal vs Humberto Gonzalez I, Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier I & III, Marco Antonio Barrera vs Kennedy Mckinney, Riddick Bowe vs Evander Holyfield I

Used to be Leonard-Duran I, which is still the 'best' fight ever fought imo. A man's fight.

Since then sentimentality has stricken. At the moment it is either either Barrera-Morales I or Duran-Barkley. These fights move me.

...I'm such a big fat girl.

I know some of you will groan at this as anyone with a passing knowledge of boxing will say this but i really think Ali-frazier 3 takes some beating. Ok, skillwise its not up with the 1st fight, but for sheer doggedness, toughness and outright brutality, it takes some licking.

Both of those guys gave everything they had in it was a downhill journey career wise afterwards. How it even made it to the 15th is incredible when you look at all the punishment absorbed & there weren't many jabs landed in the fight.
Well said, that is my favourite fight of all-time as well if I had to pick just one. Some other fights I tend to watch regularly would be:

Eduardo Lausse vs Gene Fullmer
Ralph Dupas vs Charley Scott IV
Jose Stable vs Stanley Hayward, Charley Scott
Gaspar Ortega vs Federico Thompson
Kenny Lane vs Carlos Hernandez
Paolo Rosi vs Lenny Matthews
Carmen Basilio vs Gil Turner
Florentino Fernandez vs Rocky Rivero I&II
Dick Tiger vs Jose Gonzalez
Joey Giardello vs Randy Sandy
Willie Pastrano vs Gregorio Peralta I&II
Niccolino Locche vs Paul Fuji
Carl Olson vs Randy Turpin
Jake LaMotta vs Bob Murphy II
Chung Il Choi vs Rolando Navarette
Luis Rodriguez vs Federico Thompson
Holley Mims vs Joey Archer
Isaac Logart vs Jorge Fernandez II
Kid Gavilan vs Johnny Bratton II
Ralph Tiger Jones vs Tony Baldoni
Harold Johnson vs Doug Jones
Ruben Olivares vs Chucho Castillo I
Fighting Harada vs Pone Kingpetch I
Joe Frazier vs Oscar Bonavena II
Carlos Monzon vs Bennie Briscoe II
