I really like the 3rd Barrera-Morales fight.
Some high skill levels and really fancy tricks go down in those 12 rounds.

My favorite all time though would probably have to be the Thrilla in Manila. I screamed ho**** for that one, and I was a kid.

Nice shout, Nasakki. Some beautiful, clean combinations thrown by both.

Barrera's 1-2, left uppercut combination in the second round is one of the most beautiful combinations ever caught on slow motion.

I have too many to list. My favorite in my lifetime just in terms of everything involved would have to be Hagler-Hearns. My friend (who was pro-Hearns) and I (pro-Hagler) had everyone at Canoga Park High School in a near fever-pitch come fight time after a month of hyping the fight, taking polls where you signed your name under the fighter you thought would win, etc.

Come fight time I could hardly breathe. That first bell rang and I could hardly believe it was happening, still wondering how Marvin would respond to Tommy's cannon of a right (the Duran KO still fresh in everyone's minds). Seeing that first exchange and hearing Al Bernstein yelling "Hagler is hurt! Hagler is stunned!". I was sick with worry and thought "this is it. Marvin can't outbox Tommy and now he just showed he can't trade with him either. He's in trouble.". Then Marvin comes back. Then he's cut. More worry. Shifts in momentum. The round ends.

Tommy starts boxing later on. I remember what he did to Sugar Ray when he boxed and was worried even worse because of the cut on Hagler. More action. The eventual KO. Total release of months of tension.

I've not experienced anything like it in boxing before or since.

Duran over Barkley.

Unprecedented. Removed from his physical prime and his ideal weight, against a massive middle weight who fought the best possible fight he could. And with all the fire gone out of Duran's eyes he just outboxed him. It was so beautiful it had Ray Arcel back in his apartment in hysterics.
