Default 5 great fights that are seldom mentioned

I am looking for 5 entertaining fights from a variety of eras/divisions, that seldom get discussed....Please no Hagler/Hearns or other fights that have been watched and discussed to death.

1 Gene Fullmer vs Gil Turner II
2 Eijiro Murata vs Lupe Pintor
3 Mando Ramos vs Sugar Ramos
4 Rafael Herrera vs Venice Borkhorsor
5 Alan Minter vs kevin Finnegan II

Just to name a few I enjoy, but don't see discussed....What under appreciated fights would you tell others to watch???

Marcos Maidana vs. Jesus Soto-Karass recently was a very good fight.
Corrie Sanders vs. Hasim Rahman was good.
Tommy Morrison vs. Joe Hipp
Naseem Hamed vs. Augie Sanchez
Shane Mosley vs. Miguel Cotto

I have heard this one mentioned on here before (not frequently), but have never watched it....I am adding it to my list. To be honest I was excpecting more heavyweight action from you!

I don't think I have seen the first 3 (maybe the Ramos fight???)


Mitchell vs McDonell is a great shout out...I believe following that fight McDonell was asked about Mitchell and he responded...Mitchell really doesn't do anything great....but he does everything very well, and that translates into greatness...Good fight as well.

I just watched this one last night! I was rescoring Mercer-Lewis, and watched this as a follow up. Damiani was much better than either I remembered or gave him credit for. He was controlling much of the fight and was ahead on my card, when he either wore down, and/or mercer caught him with the perfect punch...and it was as close to a perfect punch as you can find....just clipped his nose, and bye-bye!
