Default Which Rivalry was your favourite?

this is not about which one produced the best fights. I mean which one did you find most interesting for activities inside and outside the ring

For me it was Benn Eubank probably because I can remember it. that produced some of the greatest moments in tv history

Ali Frazier will probably get the most votes. But i didnt like Ali's behaviour toward joe in the build up to those fights. he went too far

I'd go for Ali Frazier. I feel the same way about the comments, but
to me it just adds to the rivalry. plus Frazier's my favorite fighter.

I grew up with my Old Man telling me about Graziano-Zale and used to read about them in books as a kid. The stories and the black and white pictures really captured my imagination.

I think Graziano-Zale had it all, great fights, contrasting personalities and personas, interesting background stories. Even as a kid these fighters seemed amazing, I couldn't read enough about them.

A toss-up between Ali Frazier & Morales Barrera.

Ali n Frazier had dislike for each other & were always entertaining together, appearing on talk shows at the same time, always slagging each other off etc.

Morales n Barrera have more deep hatred towards each other because of the mexican class thing among other things + they actually threw real bare fist punches at each other & both even hate being in the same room as each other.

Its between those 2 for me.

Then surely you could have found an avater where Joe isnt missing wildly with a left hook while Ali avoids the punch with his hands by his waist.
Ali is my fav fighter & thats the sort of avater Id choose.



Ps. There are real good ones of Ali half way down towards the canvas after Joe has nailed him with that left in the 15th rd.

Another vote for the Schoolboy & Bazooka.

The days are long since gone when you'd see each guy's management taking that tough of hombre 4 times. You're fortunate to see anything more than a single rematch.
