Sugar Ray Leonard v Tommy Hearns 1
'And now, for my next one, I'd like to return to the classics'. It's good every now and again to rewatch a...
You've got to do it from time to time...
Hagler's a guy who I think probably could have handled that physical workload as he was always in shape and seemed ready to go. Hopkins is another...
I haven't watched it since 1991 but my memory of it was that it was somewhat controversial.
Fenech against Nelson is an obvious example.
Harada against Famechon.
Michael Watson against Chris Eubank.
Agree with all of this.
Fidel Bassa - Dave McCauley 1
Wow - how Bassa came back to win this I'll never know! He was out on his feet more than once and showed remarkable...
Carbajal v Gonzalez 1
Incredible comeback from Carbajal after getting dropped twice. I could have conceivably given Gonzalez every round but...
Least favourite - how so? Just interested as it ticks all the boxes for me.
Hagler would pick Benn apart. Benn's tailor-made for the Marvelous one. He'd go straight for Marvin and Hagler would use that aggression against...
Watched this just before Christmas. Here's my card and comments from then.
Oh bollox - think I messed my card up by putting the scores the wrong way round at some point (scored this fight over two days) so I'm even less...
Robert Quiroga v Akeem Anifwoshe
4 10-9 (close)
7 9-10 (close)
8 10-9 (close)
10 9-10 (close)
Favourite era? Late 70s/early 80s
Era I grew up watching boxing? 90s
If you lose to Virgil Hill, that automatically exempts you from any possible claim to greatness.
Pure fan favourites card
-Flyweight: Yuri Arbachakov v Mark Johnson
-Bantamweight: Romeo Anaya v Alfonso Zamora
Benn for me as well. I don't rule out Duran pulling off a win, though.
I think this was 1940, not 1949. Will give it a watch - you're inspiring me with all these Louis fights!
Duran v Arguello is my number one.
Good that you agree with yourself, JT! ;)
Ok, all of that may well be fair and true but this is h2h and in my view, Johnston was the better technician and I think he'd be too slick...
That's some weird logic.
Shane Mosley v Oscar De La Hoya 1
Maybe not a great fight, but certainly a very good one. Lots of clean exchanges that elevate it above the...
I agree with you, Johnston is a bit too slick for Diaz. He'd win this on points.
