    This is a great list!

    The Israel Vazquez-Rafael Marquez trilogy is behind only Ali-Frazier as far as all time trilogies go (in my opinion).

    It's cool to see a new boxing fan. It feels like something you're basically born into or you're not these days.

    My memory is shocking so I can only name ones that took place in the last 2 years or so.
    My pick would be Chocolatito Estrada 2

    An unfortunate robbery

    Cotto-Margarito

    Marquez v Katsidis

    Both gave me goosebumps watching

    Some that stick in my memory:-

    Bradley v Provodnikov. BRUTAL!
    Pac v Marquez IV
    Pac v Cotto
    Mayweather vs Canelo (Mayweather at his best IMO, sublime 'in the pocket')
    Lucas Mathysse v Danny Garcia
    Khan vs Maidana (still not sure how Khan made it to the end)
    Froch vs Kessler I (2 was still good too, but I was a classic)
    GGG vs Canelo I & II - both classics, slightly soiled by the decisions IMO, but great GREAT wars
    Wlad v Joshua - pretty much had the lot
    Taylor v Prograis - my FOTY 2019 - two top drawer operators elevating each other in a thriller
