There are exellent Youtube compilations of Duran, Hagler and Hearns. Explain who these fighters were and what they were capable of. Then show him.

I've never seen you mention this one sal, so will be sure to seek it out. This thread seems to pop up every few months or so. Shame we lost all the archived posts as there were some great suggestions.

I was doing a search on Kennedy McKinney v Welcome Ncita I the other day and a cached thread on Google was still there with you raving about it so I've put it on my to get list.

Hmmm, any fight with Bobby Chacon was good. Recently I've become a big fan of his, I just paid for an 8x10 photo of him and Ruben Olivares signed by both of them. Big fan and his attitude was inspiring, his fight with Limon where he knocks him down with like 15 seconds to go, to secure himself the win was the best.

Marciano - Walcott I
Holmes - Norton
Frazier - Ellis
Dempsey - Firpo
Louis - Schmeling II
Holyfield - Tyson I
Whitaker - Chavez (outrageous verdict, though)
Liston - Williams
Lewis - Rahamn II
Leonard - Benitez
Eubank - Benn I

and many, many more.
