    Tempted to add Hughie Fury vs Kostiantyn Dovbyshchenko, given how little coverage it got... nonetheless, "he got more rounds in" seems to be the size of it

    Diego Corrales moving up from 135 that he can clearly not make after castillo debacle. taking on wbc 140lb title holder, Arturo Gatti.

    Jung Koo Chang vs Myung Woo Yuh
    2 of the longest reigning light flyweight belt holders in history. sat side by side for close to half a decade as champions....never fought eachother. mental. doesnt make any sense.

    Barker v Macklin was due to happen.

    Barker started having hip problems around that time and pulled out of a potential fight.

    Told this story here before Barker had a huge following was given a huge book of tickets by FW which the fighter always get a % of in big fights so in his interest to shift them.

    The book was returned fully intact weeks later. Sadly a fight that never happened but should of.

    Wonder what Fury thinks in hindsight of not taking on David Price, was a fight due to be made but fell through a few times!

    oh forgot one that was big at the time i was thinking about recently.

    Thaxton - Khan.
    thaxton british title, khan commonwealth. both had a string of furious fights leading up to 2008. then amir went for inter-cont route. thaxton gets stopped on cuts then broiling together when khan get obliterated within a round and thaxton was on a euro route. should never let stuff off the boil. not all food improves with time.
