    What are the greatest closing rounds in boxing? It doesn't matter if it goes to decision or if it ends in a knockout. For instance, Lee-LoCicero 5 and Foreman-Lyle 5 are some of my absolute favorite finales. However, Norton-Holmes is my favorite.

    Holmes-Norton in terms of final scheduled rounds is hard to top for pure action.

    Colin Jones v Kirkland Laing 1 & 2
    Both identical fights, Laing way ahead in both fights, only to be KOd in rnd 9 in both bouts !
    Jones admits he only won 2 rounds out of 18 ( the 9th in both fights ).
