    I really enjoyed Diego Delahoya vs Rios.. I had money riding on Rios which made it more suspenseful.

    While not quite the FOTY. For matches involving lower tier fighters with several losses. These are quite thrilling at times, and thankfully relatively short.

    Patryk Syzmanski vs. Robert Talarek


    Ricards Bolotniks vs Gasan Gasanov


    Serhiy Demchenko vs Hakim Zoulikha II

    Jamal James v Antonio DeMarco was a good watch.

    At the world level Doheny Vs Roman was dramatic and exciting (and has the profile needed to be considered)
    Kyoguchi Vs Hisada
    GGG Vs Derveyanchenko
    Akhmedov Vs Barrios


    At a lower level
    Taniguchi Vs Ishizawa
    Saito Vs Suzuki

    Has to be included ,multiple knockdowns ,huge upset and don't see the rematch being a nail biter this time but we'll see.

    If Ortiz can take 10 years off one more time and come in at 39 ,we could get a good one there again to.

    IDK, … A Great fight has to have every element ,with back and forth /knockdowns ,mayb)e blood ? Optional,and tough calls and close to near ending rounds that could shift either way.

    1. Joshua vs Ruiz ( This fight is just to important and has many of the elements to not be on here even if other fights were more action packed altogether rounds ) Multiple knockdowns and challenger winning a fight after getting knocked down first is a rarity.

    2. Kovalev vs Yard. Another fight that was within a few punches from being a different outcome, Yarde took severe punishment after round 5 and almost made it to the end in a fight that ended up being how long would the challenger last and you watched him fight the time instead of Kovalev .

    3. Makabu vs Papin This fight was non stop from round 1 to the end, where a different finish may have happened had the round had a little more time.
