    Arguello vs Pryor 2. Seeing Alexis in this bout is saddening.

    Seeing the once 'unbeatable' Olivares getting manhandled by Pedroza is pretty bad as well.

    Holmes vs Tyson.
    Frazier vs Foreman 1&2.
    Patterson vs Liston 1,2 & Ingo 1.

    3 of my favourites, and my 3 favourite HWs, taking the 6 biggest beatings of their careers.

    Ali vs Holmes and Shavers
    Hearns vs Duran
    Hagler vs Hearns
    Holyfield vs Qawi 2
    Saad vs Qawi 2
    Stewart (2), Spinks and EMM vs Johnson
    Tiger vs Foster
    Lopez vs Sanchez 1&2

    To name a few without too long a think .

    And the most modern, which genuinely really upset me and hit home the hardest was Patrick Day vs Charles Conway.

    Jack Britton vs Soldier Bartfield doesn't get the credit it deserves imo

    Tragic fights - try not to watch them. I haven't seen Benn-McClellan since the fight took place and I've never rewatched Watson-Eubank 2. I was cheering Watson on all night and he was winning so to see it all taken away with one punch was awful.

    Mclellan got what he deserved, a great result which could have been better had 50 labradors ripped him to pieces once Benn flattened him though.

    Pretty much all of Mayweather's fights

    Ali-Frazier 2

    Fury-Wlad

    Pretty much all of Wlad's post-Sanders wins.

    Tyson-Tucker

    Rosario against Chavez. It was such a great performance by Chavez. It surprised me. Rosario's power was no existent.

    Marciano vs Louis is an obvious choice.

    Camacho vs Leonard

    I know many here don't like Sugar Ray Leonard, but I must confess I felt sad to see camacho beating him that way.
