    Maybe not a classic, but Contehs win over Finnigan was a master class of boxing skills, his movement was sublime, in and out with fast and hurtful combos, looking lean and very fit, what a fine fighter he was in his prime. stay safe guys.

    Michael Brodie vs Neil Swain is one that sticks in the memory. Not too sure if Kev Leushing vs Chris Saunders was for the British, but a cracking fight any way.

    Jamie Moore vs Michael Jones. I am sure Jamie went in at short notice to fight Jones, who was a good fighter. Jamie pulled off a cracking victory and also won the rematch.

    Kostas Petrou v Rocky Kelly
    George Feeney v Ray Cattouse
    David Pearce v Neville Meade
    Tony Willis v Ian McLeod
    Terry Marsh v Clinton McKenzie
    All from the 80's.

    Kelly was in some heart stopping wars. He also fought memorable eliminators against Tony Brown and Chris Sanigar.

    Steve Sims v Jimmy Flint. (Final eliminator).

    Also, from the early 90's, Wally Swift v Tony Collins.

    There are probably more venerable members such as @mcvey and @MikeCannon, who could tell you about blood drenched wars featuring the likes of Henry Rhiney, Pat Thomas and Pat McCormack.

    I don't live in your country but how about the Kirkland Laying vs Colin Jones bouts? I've never seen the full fights but from what I've seen they were great bouts.
    I remember seeing a bout where Heorl Graham was fighting an up and comer for the British title and he gave a masterful performance but the opponent was injured and I think couldn't box anymore unfortunately. I remember that fight got alot of hype.

    That would be Rod Douglas, who beat Nigel Benn as an amateur.

    While only an eliminator for the title, Mark Kaylor v Erroll Christie, which despite the notoriety, was a brilliant back and forth fight.

    Great thread.

    What about Ryan Rhodes vs Jamie Moore?

    Maybe it wasn’t a title fight.

    I can’t remember.

    Great fight though.
