    But covered themselves in glory.
    Ali vs Frazier 1
    Pintor vs Gomez
    Mancini vs Arguello
    Barkley vs. Duran
    Taylor vs Chavez
    Yaqui vs Saad
    (I love Frazier from Manilla just perfect but not his greatest fight)

    Calamity Cooney vs Holmes

    Without seeing it Zale-Graziano 1 deserves a shout.

    I've always thought Chiquita Gonzalez was at the top of his game in the first Carbajal fight despite losing and taking out the series later.

    By far his greatest effort. Although I thought he lost to Snipes a yr before and lost 9 rds to LARRY, Wither never even tried to get in shape again.

    I always thought Napoles heart was very underrated in his bout against Stracey.

    Tatsuyoshi in the 2 Veeraphol bouts showed some of the biggest balls I've seen in a ring. To immediately rematch someone who stopped you, with that attitude and start, and those eye problems, takes cajones. He was literally fighting on spirit, and passed out as soon as the ref waved it.

    And of course our Johnny Owen against Pintor. Simply a performance, and a fighter, that should never be forgotten. Welsh son.

    1 of my alltime favorite fights and one of my top 6 all time favorite savage fistfighters. Pintor! What a great unexpexted WAR. I would love to die going out on my shield. Doing what I love. An honor and a good death. Great call!!!
    Where's yr buddy? Haven't seen him lately. George I mean.
