Default What Classic Fight(s) Have You Not Seen?

I sometimes marvel at the sheer magnitude of fights some of you can recall. I don't watch as many, but still have seen just about all the requisite "must-watch" things a classic fan must claim.

Still, others elude me for one reason or another. One I've been meaning to get to is Napoles-Griffith, now that it's on youtube. Just haven't gotten around to it.

What about you? What fights have you not yet seen that you keep meaning to get to? Any embarrassing omissions in your viewing list, like an Ali fight or some standard fare?

You only need half an hour if you skip the corner between rounds Enjoy

It's foolish to mention either in the same breath as Chacon-Limon IV, or any of those great Chacon-Limon-Boza fights.

Ali-Spinks.

Just to name one of the classic HW fights i havent seen, HW's arent my cup a tea.

I only watch if i know the fight is a great one(that means that currently i never watch them).

Now that i would like to see.

Really curious to see how that fight unfolded.

Either Park fought a dif fight or Canto pull out all the tricks in his book considering how clearly he was beat in their first fight.

And Getting a draw in Korea it basically mean you won but instead of completely rob you they just rob you a lil bit.

Greb - Tunney....but seriously. There are fights from the 80's which I missed for one reason or another. I just saw Marlon Starling - Simon Brown last week. It was high on my list. Others include:

McGuigan - Laporte
McGuigan - Caba
Pedroza - Gerald Hayes
Pedroza - Jorge Lujan
Lupe Pintor - Jose Uziga
Lupe Pintor - Jovito Rengifo

Not necessarily classic fights, but this was the time period when the fights meant the most to me and before I had a VCR to tape fights.

No, no, this is a legit thread.........
