You could also add Schmeling over Louis as he was a huge underdog

Agree.
I didn't even watch that one. I figured Tyson would murder Douglass, so I went on a date instead.
I should have watched the fight. Would have been a much better time than that date turned out to be.

I wasn't born when they fought nevertheless a significant moment in boxing and definitely the greatest win ever.

Solid list, though I'm surprised you have Montreal so low, but to each his own.
