For me, Froch-Bute. To just walk through a hard-hitting, world class fighter in his prime and stop him in 5 rounds. Very impressive.

Hattons win pips it for me just because Tszyu had mixed with the best for so long and it was Hattons first real step up to world class. but the way froch finished his fight was excepional and calzaghes win was up there but i feel lacy was a bit too hyped

It's hard to say.

You'd be after-timing to say that one was shot, the other had a weak chin and the other was crap anyway.

I'd say taking into account his consensus standing at the time you'd have to go with Hatton vs Tszyu.

Lacy hadn't really beaten anyone of note and Bute was to all intents and purposes stopped by Andrade.

Tszyu was pretty inactive but had wasted Sharmba Mitchell - a man who Allegedly didn't want Hatton to fight in 2004 - inside three rounds immediately prior to their showdown.

It would also be harsh to say that Tszyu struggled with pressure fighters, though there's no other logical explanation for an apparently strong chinned fighter having a late KO loss to Vince Phillips.

I think the manner in which Froch disposed of Bute will harm the reputation of the win. He walked through him and brutally stopped him having beaten him for the majority of five rounds, and Bute (so far which is only one fight a i realise but assume it carries on) hasnt looked the same since so people will say "he was protected/hyped/not that good" when he reality he really was that good. many people rated him above andre ward, he looked electric in all fights bar one seemed to be a great boxer whilst having a massive left hand and great body attack, not many gave froch a chance (though now everyone says they did) a lot of people thought he'd stop Froch and end his career and continues his assault on p4p rankings, Froch proved how tough he was and walked him down and got to his man.

Hatton vs Tzysu
Calzaghe vs Lacy/Froch vs Bute (need to see what Bute does from here to rank it better)

Calzaghe's was the best performance, IMO.

Hard to say really, Lacy was all hype and a genuine expose (don't know how to do the accent over the 'E'), Bute was chinny and we knew it, Hatton wouldn't have beaten Tszyu with an impartial referee.
I'll go for Froch-Bute as I feel Bute could have outboxed Froch if Froch had employed different tactics.

Hatton, It was against the widely considered number 1 in his division, Tszyu may have been inactive but he was a good fighter, better than Lacy or Bute.
