Default Re: Greatest HW Fights

Any more suggestions? I figured with so many HW-centric posts on this board there'd be more feedback.

Here's some more to add to my original list (remember I'm looking for high-action bouts not necessarily historically significant or great strategic fights) :

Tommy Morrison v Donovan Ruddock
Tommy Morrison v Carl Williams
Larry Holmes v Gerry Cooney
Larry Holmes v Mike Weaver I
Larry Holmes v Tim Witherspoon
Ron Lyle v Earnie Shavers
Foreman v Frazier II
Alex Stewart v Ezra Sellers
Leon Spinks v Eddie Lopez
Joe Frazier v Oscar Bonavena I

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Here's my list to start things off :

Muhammad Ali v Joe Frazier I & III
Larry Holmes v Ken Norton
Ray Mercer v Bert Cooper
Ken Norton v Jose Luis Garcia II
Ken Norton v Jerry Quarry
Evander Holyfield v Michael Dokes
Evander Holyfield v Bert Cooper
Evander Holyfield v Riddick Bowe I
George Foreman v Ron Lyle
George Foreman v Alex Stewart
Mike Weaver v Michael Dokes II
Sonny Liston v Cleveland Williams I & II
Riddick Bowe v Andrew Golota II
Michael Moorer v Alex Stewart
David Tua v Ike Ibeabuchi
Joe Louis v Max Schmeling
Joe Frazier v Jerry Quarry I
Derrick Jefferson-Maurice Harris
David Tua-Daniel Izon
Sergei Liakhovich-Lamon Brewster (the best HW fight since Bowe-Golota 2 IMO)
Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko
Mike Tyson-Razor Ruddock II
Owen Beck-Monte Barrett

What about the late 70's / early 80's? Guys like Tate, Dokes, Weaver, Snipes, Leon Spinks, Witherspoon, Cooney, Tucker, Tillis, Pinklon Thomas.

Any closet classics amongst those guys?
