Default Re: Which boxer/ which fight made you take an interest in boxing?

Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali.

From the Liston days onward.

And then Frazier, Foreman, Duran, Leonard, Hagler, and all the greats from my earlier days.

Interest kept alive by Tyson, Monzon, Jones, Hopkins, Delahoys, Tito ( I almost forgot Hearns !), Lewis, and Barerra and Morales.

Every era has had its greats, some more than others, but it's always interesting.

Ward-Gatti I. That fight got me into boxing. Before that fight I thought that boxing was boring and slow and stupid. I didn't understand it at all. When Gatti got KO'd by Gomez earlier this year I came pretty close to tears.

yes it will and i wouldnt say morales and barrera dominated at 130...lightweight should b pacs topping off his career...unify at light if he cant(c wont) fight any of the 130lbers...anyway mate im not 1 2 really argue so im gnna leave it as pac is #2or3 p4p in my book at the moment and if hes gnna fly up3 weightclasses id b looking floyd more than oscar...but he wont and if he did he wouldnt win...i dont think hed carry his power that far ...look what arguello said after he fought pryor"i kept hitting him and he just laughed at me"...thats just my thoughts on the matter...its not so simple 2 just go jumping weightclasses...

Yeah, we got loads.

Even saw Fenech get screwed over in the Azumah Nelson 1 fight on NZ tv.

Calzaghe v Lacy reignited my long lost passion for the sport that I had for a long time been only a casual observer of.

Originally Jeff Fenech, got to see most of his title wins and defenses. Then met a mate with 100 VHS tapes full of boxing, started working my way through them and became a big Tommy Hearns fan.
Gave up on the sport after the Foreman-Schulz fiasco, just got tired of too many dodgy decisions. Watched the odd PPV here and there but did make an effort to catch Tszyu whenever I could.

Same here, earlier this year a mate lent me some UFC dvds. Enjoyed but wasn't quite the same, started looking up old fights on youtube and for the first time in ages went to the pub at 9am to watch a PPV, Pavlik-Taylor. Now I'm hooked again.
