Default Your personal ten favourite fights?

I thought as we were having fun re-treading old ground (Pachilles "ten favourite fighters" thread), I would dig up thise hoary old chestnut.

Just what is says on the tin, BUT, no honourable mentions, no naming eleven fights. Think of it as quality control. Here are mine:


01 - Robinson TKO13 LaMotta
02 - Vasquez UD12 Marquez
03 - Burley UD10 Smith
04 - Johnson SD10 Charles
05 - Charles KO6 Marshall
06 - McCallum KO5 Curry
07 - Yuh TKO7 Son
08 - Tiger UD10 Hank
09 - Joe Frazier UD15 Muhammad Ali
10 - Chionoi TKO13 Torres


Let's see yours?

First time I have seen someone else with Arguello-Escalera I on their list of favorite fights. Great match and great picks I was wresteling with Napoles/Cokes and olivares/Rose as well.

Yep, infact you were the one who sent me Arguello vs Escalara I. Just a really good fight between two classy operaters. Also Arguello is my favrouite fighter, in fact the second fight is just as good.

Napoles vs Cokes, is just an amazing performance literally one of the best performances ever.

And Olivares vs Rose showcases the most destructive Bantamweight of all time, at his peak.

When you are not as busy as you always seem to be let me know when you are up for another trade...I believe you landed Buchanan-Laguna I (I always felt that Laguna nipped the decision...oh well!) a fight that I have been looking for, for a while. And Arguello-Escalera II could easily have made my list as well...on the right week it probably would!

I believe you were the one who sent me Napoles vs Cokes I & II
