Default Fav Heavyweight bouts from the 90s-00s

Whats up, new here. Don't box but going to start training soon just for a workout, maybe more if I discover I have a talent or intense passion for it. Ive gotten really into boxing recently and I would like to know what some of your favorite bouts from the 90s to early 00s are in the heavyweight division?

Ive read the posts an you guys sound like experts. I prefer watching heavyweight matches because I myself if I ever box, that's the division I would have to be in.

Tua - Ibeabuchi
Brewster - Liakhovich is fantastic
Mercer - Lewis

They spring to mind amongst the mega-fights already listed but it's been pretty slim, especially in recent years. I personally think that if you were to takew the context and sensation of Holyfield - Tyson I away (not that you'd want to) you're not left with that great a fight. Was a poor FOTY choice I think in a year which had Barrera - McKinney, Liles - Little II and Gatti - Rodriguez. But that's just me.

And though it was fought at cruiserweight, if you've not seen Toney - Jirov you really, really ought to.
