    Thanks for the reply.
    Oh my, he was awful that night.
    Earlier that year in his previous fight he put up a great show against Bowe.
    He came into the ring against Lennox looking like he'd aged 5 years in that time.
    Once Lennox clubbed him with a right hand it was easy to see he didn't wanna be there .
    I think you are right about it being on a Holyfield undercard.

    I have not seen too many great live fights. I saw Hearns fight twice.. Genaro Hernandez, Humberto Gonzales, Chavez. But not in big fights. I saw smaller fights when I lived in California. Now that I live in Dallas, Texas I have not seen a fight for sometime.

    Hagler & Arguello were the 2 names that sprung to mind when I saw this thread (against Minter & Watt respectively).

    Honourable mentions; Santos Laciar (although he lost on points to Charlie Magri when I saw him!); Tim Witherspoon, Jimmy Young; most of the best British fighters from the late 70s to the early 90s.

    Kostya Tszyu.

    I saw him blast out some guy called Pedro Sanchez in Melbourne in 1994 as a pimply faced 18 year old. He looked pretty damn good I must say.

    Other than that the best fighter I saw live was Jeff Fenech, only he wasn't. I saw him get stopped in 2 by Phillip Holiday again in Melbourne in 1996. It was pretty sad to be honest. I was lucky enough to see Fenech fight live on TV during his peak years as a young kid and I prefer to remember those days.

    I went to the Lomachenko-Rigondeaux and Linares fights too. The Linares one was one of my favorites of recent years.

    I went a lot to fights at the Forum, Los Angeles as a kid for about 5 years, 70's .. early 80's. . I think it was Tuesday night fights at the Forum .. Between the fights, Laker games, Kings games, and rock concerts... Man the Forum was awesome for events

    Best Ali-Frazier at that time, I thought Frazier was the best ever.
    Most exciting, Aaron Pryor.
