    Hatton vs. Witter springs to mind.

    Any others you can think of? Not fantasy fights but genuine fights from the same era that could have taken place but didn't due to several factors, such as politics, rival promotions, belts, weight etc.

    Lewis v Bowe is an obvious choice
    Calzaghe v Froch but I understand Joe's reasoning.
    Khan v Brook, no way are we counting that corpse v corpse fight.
    Fury v Price. Let's all be honest here, Fury ducked the plumber.

    Lewis v Bowe was the biggest disappointment.

    Khan v Brook would have probably happened 2 years earlier if it weren't for covid so they would have been 33. You still think that's too late?

    What a character and hopefully Jim is back in place for the Usyk v Fury fight.

    I think Murray may have been too tough for them in hindsight.

    Lewis/Bowe is the obvious one.
