That fight is like watching two drunk rednecks going at it. Not really entertaining to me to be honest.
My point exactly.

The 14 people who put Gatti vs Ward down are not true boxing fans. They are UFC fans visiting this site.

All 3 fights were at different weights (122, 126, 130)
Both men severely disliked each other.
Fight 1 was arguably the best fight of all time, an all out war of heart, grit & brutality.
Fight 2 showed there technical expertise & fighting brain.
Fight 3 showed a perfect blend of the first 2 fights, reminding us yet again just how versatile & evenly matched these 2 great fighters were.

Yep, all true
bang on

Without a doubt, Ali/Frazier both in social and boxing historical significance.
This trilogy made Ali top 5 ATG. No other fights has been documented and dissected individually and as a whole as this trilogy.

To this day we (boxing fans), casual fans and media talk about it.

While MAB/EM is an ATG trilogy it is not even in the same galaxy as Ali/Frazier.

Ali vs. Frazier III was one of the most brutal fights I've ever seen. Their first fight was one of the most significant and paid-attention-to fights of all time. Second fight lacked some lustre, but the trilogy overall is probably the most significant in history and had all the ingredients of greatness.

Barrera vs Morales.

Not surprised that Ali vs Norton doesn't have any votes up 'till now, because of 3 things... 1) Ali vs Frazier was obviously better. 2) Ali wasn't really at the top of his game and Norton wasn't really that special. 3) The result (2-1 Ali) was just plain wrong!

Is this one of the best games of football of all-time???

No.. shall I tell you why.. cos both teams are toilet!


Same applies to Gatti vs Ward.
Gatti and Ward were far from 'toilet'. Gatti 2 x World Champion, you can't take that away. Sorry. Micky was a LWW all his career because of dedication and was a contender not some scrub. Yeah these 2 won't go down as the very best there ever was BUT they won't be forgot either. Gave us an excellent trilogy and left it all in the ring. Some fight 'fans' will never be happy.

There's a debate over whether it qualifies because of that farce 4th fight. If it qualifies it's got my vote. 4th fight dont count! What a trilogy.

I voted Pac/Morales because i'm a Pactard.

But I thought, out of the choices, I liked Morales/Barrera Trilogy. Those to mofos hate each other--->makes a good trilogy. Ali/Frazier is such an obvious and predictable choice
