I would've wanted to be in MSG for the Margarito rematch, just because that revenge was a long time coming and Cotto staring down Margarito in his corner after the fight is one of my favorite boxing moments ever that didn't happen during an actual match.

I really like Mosley, that fight was a little bittersweet. The rematch with Margo would have been nice, but I think I would rather have seen him blast out Quintana and become a star or the Judah fight.

Any 5 of Harry Greb's fights, just too see if the reality lives up to the legend.
