    If you were a Honeyghan fan, the Breland fight was painful to watch.

    Most of Mayweather's fights from the last 10 -15 yrs.
    especially the last 10yrs. Since he's mastered the smoke
    and mirrors routine.

    Too true. I watched it the first time it was TV but never again.

    Post lightweight Mayweather. Before then Money Mayweather was a exciting attacking fighter when he wanted to be.

    It was nearly seventy years ago. You're missing out on a great fight.

    The first two are quite obvious. But why the last two?

    Klitschko-Ibragimov...it doesn't get any worse that this:

    And these are the HIGHLIGHTS!

    Klitschko v Povetkin was also a shambles. Once was enough, never again.

    Ali-Holmes and Tyson's last two spring immediately to mind, but in general fights were one was just totally washed up. Leonard-Camacho is another.

    Same here. Eubank-Watson 2 is another one I can't bring myself to watch again.

    I haven't watched Griffith-Paret and never will, I think.

    Never, and it's probably one that I need to watch, given the kind of scrapes that I get into!

    I have never rewatched, nor will I ever, the two Little Red Lopez v Sanchez fights. I still hate Sanchez.
    I can't see myself watching Chavez v Taylor ever again because I have watched it soooooo many times.
    About 2 years ago I finally watched Zarate v Gomez. I could not, based on the dozen Gomez fights I had seen, understand how he beat Zarate.
