Good list. Don't mean to throw salt in a wound, but I think you'd have to include Douglas - Tyson. For similar reasons I think Foreman - Moorer could make this list. I like the mention of Gonzalez - Carbajal. That's a great, somewhat overlooked rivalry.

those were more fights of great significance than actual great, toe to toe, sea saw action

Best: Jones Jr-Hopkins (a schooling par excellence) or Bowe-Holyfield (best HW fight of last two decades)

Fave: Holyfield-Tyson ('nuff said)

Great calls with Barrera v McKinney and Benn v Eubank I, two tremendous displays from the victors. Did you happen to see Alejandro Gonzalez v Kevin Kelley in about 1995? Or Sorjatorung v Chiquita Gonzalez? Those two would definitely be in my top 10: immense. Gatti v Ruelas and (despite the tragic consequences) Benn v McClennan would also be up there. Great list though.

Alejandro Gonzalez v Kevin Kelly was an awesome fight. Wasn't that the first main event that they showed on Boxing After Dark?

Do you mean Jones Jr v Toney?? Jones-Hopkins was 116-112 x3, Jones Jr won pretty clearly, but it was not exactly a 'schooling', or particularly exciting. Hopkins hadn't achieved much in his career by that time and wasn't very highly rated. Jones Jr v Toney was the schooling par excellence of the 1990s, as Toney was #2 p4p at the time, and the scores were something like 119-108, 118-109, 117-110.

I'm not sure mate, I'm from the UK so had to rely on buying videos in the 90s!

if you believe that the Millenium started in 2001, not 2000. what changes would you make to that list. chavez taylor is out becuase that was in 1990 is well as benn v eubank 1. but vargas v tito are in and MAB V Barerra 1

Here is my list for those of that belief:

MAB v Morales
Bowe V Holyfield 1
Chiquita Gonzalez V Michael Carbajal 1
Barerra V McKInney
Vargas V Tito
Gatti V Rodriguez
Gatti V Robinson
hamed V Kelly

Why not just do a top 10 or a top 8 from 2000-2008 instead?
