    Which big fight's throughout boxing history do you think would've had a different outcome if both fighter's were in their prime at the time they fought? A few examples for me are:

    Muhammad Ali vs Larry Holmes
    Larry Holmes vs Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield
    Pernell Whitaker vs Tito Trinadad and Oscar De La Hoya
    Sugar Ray Leonard vs Terry Norris
    Roy Jones vs Joe Calzaghe
    Julio Cesar Chavez Sr vs Kostya Tszyu and Oscar De La Hoya
    Shane Mosley vs Canelo
    Mike Tyson vs Danny Williams
    Wladimir Klitschko vs Anthony Joshua
