I really really loved Vargas Vs Wright but it never seems to be a very popular choice.

I have a tough time picking my best fight of the 90s. I might lean towards Carbajal-Gonzalez 1, but it's hard to not pick some of those others.

Quartey-DLH had two good rounds and the rest of it was blah. Too much staring and posing.

Holyfield-Tyson 1 is overrated. Good fight, great atmosphere but too much clinching. There were several better fights in 1996. Gatti-Rodriguez, Barrera-McKinney, Liles-Littles 2, Bowe-Golota 2, Kelley-Gainer 1.

I have a tough time picking the best fight of the 80s as well. Saad-Lopez 2, Duran-Leonard 1, Brown-Trice, Holyfield-Dokes, Hagler-Hearns, Pryor-Arguello 1, Gomez-Pintor, Chacon-Edwards 2, Chacon-Limon 4.

Only the 00s I have a clear winner. Corrales-Castillo 1.
