I'll start:

Jack Dempsey vs Jess Willard- I read about this fight and thought it sounded like a horrific beating, but actually watching the footage after you heard how much damage Willard took was insane. How he wasn't killed I'll never know, I 've never seen a fighter as vicious as Dempsey was in that fight.

Hearns vs Duran- This to me is Hearns most exciting performance, at what I believe was his peak. Nobody destroyed Roberto like Tommy did either before or after this fight, and the finishing right cross is my favourite knockout punch of all time.

Tyson vs Spinks- Tyson at his absolute peak. I know not many people expected Spinks to win, but I can't imagine anyone expected him to be demolished in the fashion he was against Tyson. This was Mike's crowning achievement in my eyes, and he never looked any better before or after it.

Any others?
Roberto Duran would not be denied against Ken Buchannan and in his first Sugar Ray Leonard fight, although the performances might not be terryfing, they were certainly awe-inspiring imo

Pryor-Arguello 1 should make this list. Pryor ate some bombs and just kept coming non stop. That HAD to be terrifying to Alexis.

I was thinking Trinidad-Joppy as well. I am not a huge Floyd fan but his demolition of Gatti had me in awe. Dont know if people will agree on me with this, but Cotto's destructions of Quintana was pretty damn impressive.

Yes! The Duran performance is amazing, but for sheer artistry the Cuevas domination is unbeatable!

Beautiful use of feints,elusive head movement,darting in and out with feet and hands,super jab,speed,constant pressure,use of height and reach and the best right cross the welter (or 154 division.) has ever seen. All at 21 years old in his first title fight against a long reigning,rock fisted,granite chinned champion....
Enough adjectives in there?! Never tire of the fight or the final two blistering punches.

The Buchannan fight is a great choice, Duran was awesome in that fight.

While you are right about the cuevas fight, the duran fight is slightly ahead for me, just because of who his opponent was. Nobody did that to Duran. Does anyone know who was favoured to win that fight at the time?

Duran was indeed good against Buchanan. But it wasn't Duran at his best as a lightweight when it came to refined skills. His workrate, ability to close the distance, and sheer determination were the main factors on his showing that night. However, he lacked refinement all round. His technique and patience got better as his lightweight reign came to a close against De Jesus in their 3rd meeting. That was probably his peak performance. Economical.
