    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.

    Yaegashi vs Ioka - Round 12
    Tatsuyoshi vs Singwancha - Round 7
    Harada vs Medel 1 - Round 6
    Yuh vs DeMarco - Round 15
    Jofre vs Medel 1 - Round 10

    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 ).

    Boza-Limon round 15 is another terrific final round.

    I don’t blame him the out put and ferocity at those lighter divisions is a pleasure, the casual fan wants brutal knockouts and non stop action yet they watch the most inactive historically shallow division.

    Ya, I agree. Heavyweights are generally what I fall back on just cuz it's what I started out watching. Every other division is much more exciting.

    It’s almost like the lower you go in the divisions the higher the aggression scale.
