Evander Holyfield vs. Joe Frazier (Would be a WAR)

Joe Louis vs. Muhammad Ali (To settle it)

Lennox Lewis vs. Jack Dempsey (Just interesting to me)

Mike Tyson vs Sonny Liston (Bully fight!)

George Foreman vs. Larry Holmes (grudge match that never happened)

Jack Johnson vs. Jim Jeffries (prime for prime)

Every answer here would have been phenomenal.

To throw in a few obscure ones that would have been awesome:

Juan Diaz vs. Ray Mancini

JMM vs. Erik Morales

Wood**** I recall was not a big heavyweight, not particularly fast, but a willing banger who could never go too far as a heavyweight...My favourite
British heavyweight [never saw live] was the much more rugged and durable Tommy Farr...Different class than Wood****...

When a reporter asked Holyfield, what would have happened if Tyson hadnt gone to prison.

Holyfield replied, it would have been the greatest fight ever.

I believe Dela Hoya was involved in some of the highest grossing fights to date, so Oscar vs any of the legendary welters would be certain to draw huge interest. I'm sure Oscar would lose against all of them, but they'd probably be great fights.

How about Dela Hoya vs Leonard?
