I'm gonna go for that. I watched it too on World of Sport without knowing the result. I was willing Alexis to win it, gutted. It was the day after my 18th birthday.

Alexis would have only won through corruption, truth be told. I had Pryor at least four rounds up.

Lately, it has been Leonard - Duran I. A very close fight where both combatants exhibited enormous skills and ability.

A few.

For action i'd say cotto - margo.

For importance i'd say tyson - holyfield. This fight defined an era and was the catalyst for the atg rankings of many heavyweights in the 90's.

For emotion I would love to pick bruno over mccall but the truth is for emotion I pick foreman over moorer.

They're my top 3.

It has to be Hagler-Hearns for me due to the excitement factor and the fact that Marvin showed serious slippage against Roldan.However,I like and respect Tommy and felt bad when his "friends" ditched him after the fight.For pure glee while watching one of my absolute favorites kicking the shit out of someone that I really did not like,it would be Sanchez-Gomez.
