Default Fights you can't watch again.

Following on from the Benn-McClellan thread.....

Which fights won't you re-watch and why?

I've never rewatched Ali-Holmes or Norris-Leonard because 2 of the fighters that first got me interested in boxing got badly beaten. I've never even seen Leonard-Camacho at all.

I've never watched Benn-McClellan, Eubank-Watson II, Mancini-Kim for obvious reasons.

Never seen Ali vs Holmes/Berbick or Leonard vs Norris/Camacho and I don't intend to really either.

Brodie vs Crolla - very sad to see.
Most of those awful heavyweight fights between Williams/Audley/Skelton/Sprott.
Haskins vs Broadhurst -

I've never wanted to track down a copy of Owen-Pintor.

When fighters I've really liked have lost (especially/mainly when I was younger), I tend to watch it again, hoping it somehow turns out different , ludicrous I know - looking for some excuse, some kind of reason, I just can't accept it... the what I thought untouchable, my hero in a way, got beat.

I've watched Benn-McClellan lots of times (though most the time not till the end), I'm not going to pretend I haven't.

Far too many boring fights to mention, the most recent perhaps being Jones vs Hopkins 2.

Collins-Resto
Ingle-Botile
Oliver-Devakov

And Cotto-Margarito, I get halfway through and i just struggle to watch my favorite fighter take that punishment. Plus now having the suspicion of him using concrete wraps it winds me up a lil that he may of used them on Miguel. The other fights for obvious reasons. I'd feel creepy watching them
