Vitali Klitschko losing to Lennox Lewis
Henry Cooper losing to Muhammad Ali
Chuck Wepner (almost) going 15 with Ali.
Very interesting to read all the above comments.....brings back memories of seeing some
of the fights on TV and various other venues. Great job Posters ^^^ !!!
IMO, Golota fouling Bowe is not a great achievement.
George Chuvalo giving a prime Ali a good fight.
Bennie Briscoe's close decision loss to Monzon.
Eijiro Murata getting draws against both Pintor and Chandler.
Tyrone Everett "losing" to Alfredo Escalera.
Eddie Davis losing an extremely close (regardless of what two of the judges thought) fight to Michael Spinks.
Cleveland Willams losing to Sonny Liston.
Lastarza losing to Marciano
Firpo and Dempsey
Tiberi "losing" to Toney
Bert Cooper's valiant effort/s against Evander Holyfield and Michael Moorer.
Mike Ayala taking Danny Lopez into the 15th round of a terrific fight.
Cyclone Hart holding Bennie Briscoe to a 10 round draw.
Mario Martinez' highly disputed 12 round loss to Azumah Nelson (in their first fight)
I don't know if Pascual Aranda qualifies as a real contender, but he was beyond courageous in his loss against Antonio Esparagoza and landed some big shots and was surprisingly present against a world class p4p champion. A fight I would believe he would be proud to show his kids and grandkids.
