Lightbulb Classic Cruiserweight Fights: Vote for #1 Fight

This division really delivers the all action brawl's (World level), Of recent years we've seen some humdingers!. I like the division i think because there big guys but not overweight and slow they still have the athleticism to carry out the type of all action high tempo stuff we love to see.

Holyfield-Dwight Qawi I
Carl Thompson - Sebastian Rothman
Carl Thompson vs Chris Eubank I
Toney vs Jirov
O'Neil Bell - Jean Marc Mormeck

More recently..
Cunningham vs Adamek I
Cunningham vs Hernandez I
Huck vs Afolabi I

Plenty of others as well, But what was the greatest of them all?!.

Lee Roy Murphy v Chisanda Mutti was a good one, double knockdown too at one point

Are you counting the IBO?

If yes:

Carl Thompson v Ezra Sellers

Haye vs Enzo was an all action if short lived fight!

1. Holy-Qawi I
2. Toney-Jirov
3. Sellers-Thompson
4. Adamek-Cunningham I
5. Huck-Afolabi II

I'd love to put Holy-DeLeon on that list as its Holy's best performance imo but it wasnt very competitive. Hernandez-Cunningham & Hernandez-Ross were excellent fights last year.

Cruiser might not be a great division but it does produce great fights.

The first Holy-Qawi fight is number 1 without a doubt IMHO.

Theres a pre fight interview with Holyfield, then in his early/ mid 20s, where he says he's only going to box for a few more years so he can get enough money to open a car dealership. 20 years later he's still fighting.

Haye getting of the canvas to beat Mormeck in his backyard is a nice CW fight.

I nominate Johnny Nelson v Carlos DeLeon. This was one of the most closely contested boxing matches I've ever seen, they matched each other punch for punch for 12 rounds and both men thoroughly deserved the draw.

Had a feeling that one was coming.

I love the Eubank fight with Thompson, Jirov vs Toney was exceptional as well.

Tough choices.

I love Manny Steward's commentary during round 12 of Toney-Jirov.

Me to. ''James has no punching rooms''. ''oh my!'' ''oh my gawwwwwwwddd''

TBH so many funny things in that fight. Smoger before the fight ''touch the mans glove, James''. Then his humming at one point .

Jirov's training regime with Kazakhstan. Being put in a tight corridor with Germand Shepards surronding him. .
