Battling Nelson vs Christy Williams. I'd have loved to see that considering Nelson got knocked down 9 times and Williams got knocked down 42 times lol.

I've wondered why there is no film of Jofre/Saldivar and Moore/Pastrano.

Charley Burley WPTS Archie Moore. Burley gives Moore a boxing lesson and the worst beating of his career.

Charley Burley WPTS Cocoa Kid. Burley drops Kid 3 times on the way to a UD. Cocoa Kid was dominated

Jake LaMotta WPTS Holman Williams. A split decision for Jake over old Holman, booed by sections of the crowd, though not seen as that convtriversial.

Sam Langford KO19 Harry Wills. A one shot Ko after 19 hard rounds. Best result in boxing history?

Ezzard Charles KO8 Archie Moore. Moore was on the brink of victory when Charles found the punch.



The list goes on and on but these are great fights.

I'd even have loved to get a confirmation that his name was Christy Williams, and not Christie Mitchell as one short next-day clipping says (from semi-local Dallas, TX newspaper).

Robinson at 147
Robinson v Lamotta 1-5

Pep v Saddler II - Ive seen the odd clip of this fight but have also heard that the whole fight doesnt exist, I hope they are wrong about that, if anyone knows for sure, let me know & put me out of my misery, this was supposed to be one of the most masterfull boxing displays ever when taken into account the quality of opposition in Saddler.

There are many more, too many in fact.
