Default Classic moments that brougt a tear to your eye.

After the second knockdown in his fight with Floyd, I would say Corrales begging his dad (off-camera) not to throw in the towel.

What a warrior.

That is a good one. Wonder what the Rock was thinking as he sent Joe through the ropes.

Definitely. And watching Gatti getting beaten senseless by Gomez, who I believe Gatti would have handled fairly easily 3 or 4 years ago. This video:

BORKED


Also the ending of Rocky Balboa.

Since Joe Louis was a hero of mine growing up, seeing him draped over the ring apron a few feet from me by Rocky Marciano at the old Garden.

Seeing Joe Louis at the Garden during WWII standing center ring under a pin spot in his army uniform, saying simply, but elequently, "We'll win because we're on God's side." The mistaken reversal of the phrase couldn't have been more touching.

Floyd Patterson, after making history by nearly tearing Ingemar Johansson's head off and becoming the first man to regain the heavyweight title, exults for joy just for a few seconds, then runs over to kneel down beside the knocked cold Ingo in genuine concern for his opponents well being. If that isn't proof that all boxer's aren't just brutal savages, I don't know what is. Floyd Patterson was a genuinely good man.

I agree with this too. Joe Louis was a truly great man, champion, and an example for just about everybody. And what makes it even more heartbreaking, is how the U.S government screwed Joe so badly afterwards.

They were friends coming into the third fight... Both fighters shot themselves from this trilogy, they were never the same again.. however, they were good friends and visited eachother every now and then, quite fascinating if you ask me

Another two examples that I agree with. Ditto twice.
