too many to even think of...

I'd say Ali v Louis and Tyson v Marciano for HWs...

Zale v Hagler or Hagler v Benn

I always thought Britain's Ernie Roderick v Fritzie Zivic.

McAvoy v Walker or Greb

Lynch v Wilde

Lewis v Big Klit II

and for me Gilroy v Burley circa 1942 (it could've happened, Charley Rose invited Gilroy to America then).

Eric Boon v Henry Armstrong

loads & loads to imagine!

To settle an old question, prime for prime, Ali-Louis.

And it would be a decent scrap as well.

I've never even considered that one, but boy would that be a great fight. presumably they'd both meet at light weight, although I imagine a light welterweight or even a welterweight meeting is possible. Probably have to favor Duran, but what a match.

OK it's a deal...One of the greatest slam bang fights I saw was in 1946 when Britain's Heavyweight Bruce Wood****, took on one of my favourite action heavyweight Tami Mauriello at MSG...Oh my what a fantasy brawl
it was with tough Tami koing Wood**** in the 5th round...Cheers.

Wood**** was apparently leading that bout until he led with his chin and Tami wasted no time at seeing the opening. Wood**** got plenty of praise too for it bar that foolish moment.

How do you remember him, generally speaking?
