Default Ultimate Historical Fight Card

Let's assume you had the powers to create a fantasy fight card consisting of five fights. You can pit fighters from any era against one another, and it's assumed that each fighter will be in prime shape for the designated weight class.

If you could only use the same weight class once (meaning, you can't have Tyson-Ali and Foreman-Louis--need to choose only one fight per a give class), which five fights would you include?

Please list the five fights, the weight class they'd be fighting at, and any other details worth mentioning.

Heavyweight:

Joe Louis vs Muhammad Ali. Nothing original, but a great fight nonetheless. For the #1 spot at HW.

Light-heavyweight:

Ezzard Charles vs Michael Spinks.

Super-middleweight:

Harry Greb vs Roy Jones Jr.
Greb was a middleweight but often weighed in around 168 when he could. This would be a great clash of styles.

Middleweight:

Bernard Hopkins vs Marvin Hagler. Just so JT and MDWC can have a little rivalry

Welterweight:

Sugar Ray Robinson vs Sugar Ray Leonard. For the Sugar title.

I'd say Tyson - Ali for heavyweight.

I'd throw in Thomas Hearns vs Julian Jackson at 154 for a short prelude between Hagler/Hopkins and the Sugar title.

First we start off with Benny Leonard vs. Roberto Duran @ 135.

Then we got to middleweight and have Harry Greb and Carlos Monzon duke it out.

Henry Armstrong was all over the place in weight, so let's have him fight for the jr. welterweight title against J.C. Chavez.

Then we go to welterweight and have the two Sugar Ray's fight.

Finally we have Joe Louis vs. Muhammad Ali at HW.

How about

Jimmy Wilde vs Ricardo Lopez

Manny Pac vs Willie Pep

Roy Jones vs Bob Foster

Max Bear vs George Foreman

Jack Dempsey vs Rocky Marciano

The lighter fights would be chess matches of high drama and clash of styles and the heavyweight fights would be replays of WWI

Marciano-Frazier for the main thing, a huge, exciting slug fest.

Hagler-LaMotta @ middleweight to get the action started

Holmes-Foreman prime vs prime for a classic boxer vs slugger match

Pep-Sanchez @ featherweight

Charles-Foster @ lightheavy to get things started.\
