Default My Top 10 Mythical Match-ups

This is purely a list of fighters Ive seen enough footage of.....


1. DURAN v CHAVEZ - 135 lbs (The Duran who beat Dejesus in the 2nd fight vs the JCC who beat Rosario)

2. MORALES v HAMED - 122/126 lbs (Any time, any place, any weight, this fight would be fireworks)

3. LISTON v FOREMAN (Both guys pre Ali)

4. MARCIANO v FRAZIER (Frazier from FOTC vs Rocky from Charles rematch)

5. ARGUELLO v CHAVEZ - 130 lbs (Any time as champions at this weight)

6. PRYOR v CHAVEZ - 140 lbs (Pryor of the Arguello 1st fight vs JCC of the Camacho fight)

7. LEONARD v ROBINSON - 147 lbs (Any versions vs each other at this weight)

8. PEP v SANCHEZ - 126 lbs (Sanchez of the Gomez fight vs Pep of the Saddler 2nd fight)

9. WHITAKER v MAYWEATHER jr - 140 lbs (Floyd of the Gatti fight vs Pea of the Pineda fight)

10. HAGLER v ROBINSON - 160 lbs (Hagler of the Hearns bout vs SRR of the 6th Lamotta fight)


There are MANY more but Id defo love to have seen those fights, its hard to call a winner in most of them, most of the fights were choosen because I just know they would be all out wars where as others were choosen for the sheer artistry of boxing, I dont need to tell you guys which ones would be which.

whitaker v PBF would put more people to sleep than Anesthetic

I would not lick my lips at any fight between pure boxers. I agree with most of your list

Believe it or not, I WAS going to put Chavez v Mayweather or Chavez v Whitaker at 135 but I changed my mind as Chavez was already in 3 other fights vs Duran, Pryor & Arguello & he has fought Pea before only at a later date than I would have liked.

Another reason is the fact that I dont like Mayweather & I feel Whitaker could beat him at his own game... just plain high level technical boxing. I dont think this would be boring at all but would I choose it over the likes of Duran v Chavez ?...... HELL NO !

MORALES v HAMED would be my favorite from that list based on the explosivness factor.

DURAN v CHAVEZ would be a close 2nd.

My top 10 list of mythical match-ups would probably be:

#1. Duran vs. Chavez
#2. Armstrong vs. Pryor
#3. Robinson vs. Burley
#4. Liston vs. Tyson
#5. Chacon vs. Gatti
#6. Monzon vs. Hopkins
#7. R. Leonard vs. Gavilan
#8. Arguello vs. Sanchez
#9. Nelson vs. Barrera
#10. M. Taylor vs. Mosley


Thought about Gomez-Morales or Morales-Hamed to be put in at #10, but I'd like to see Taylor vs Mosley prime for prime.

well one guy would probably have to step up the pace and land a big punch. It would also be good to see Mayweather be humiliated for once

I know many people on this board who would pay good money to see that

I defintly would. I would like to watch this one above a fight like Foreman-Tyson for example. That would be boxing at its best.
