In no praticular order:

MAB Morales I
Gatti Ward I
Castillo Corrales I
Vasquez Marquez II
Vasquez Marquez III
Gatti Ward III
Holyfield bowe I
Toney Jirov
Trinidad Vargas
Morales Barerra III

I'm sure I'm missing some in the mid 90s as I was pretty young and didn't watch nearly as much boxing.

Very hard for me to leave out Corrales-Castillo, but the reasoning is there were a lot of relatively boring rounds in that fight where they were just locking horns and wrestling. Pretty hard to beat the last round though.

Depends on your criteria Sir.

Everyone is listing wars, in which case I'd argue that Cotto vs Margarito 1 could sneak in at the number ten spot.

Perhaps Marquez vs Pacquaio 1?

One of my favorite Gatti fights was Wilson Rodriguez, amazing fight and had to contend with the fight doctor too:
