    I don't think Ali would take Tyson the same way he took Cooper

    I say this because this match has become an obsession by some, it is like the definition of insanity in the dictionary, hoping for a different result. I think that Ali wins like in the title defense against Henry Cooper on May 21 1966, Lol.

    Most of my suggestions have already been brought up so I'll go with Trinidad-Mosley @147

    I always thought this would have been the defining fight for each man

    Say the Mosley who fought DLH in 2000 vs the Trinidad from the late 90's

    Salvador Sanchez vs Julio Caesar Chavez at 130 lbs, Julio as great as he was did have trouble with the much quicker Meldrick Taylor before stopping Taylor in round 12. On Feb 2 1980, Sanchez took the bombs of Danny Little Red Lopez before stopping Lopez in round 13 to take the 126 lb title, Sanchez had incredible stamina and an iron chin as champion.

    Entertainment and quality of fighters, the best Holyfield vs. the best Povetkin. There would be something for everybody, both are excellent fundamentally, both are skilled, and both can fight a war. I would guess that it would go from a strategic battle to an inside battle. Viewership/attendance? I have no idea.

    I'd probably go for the former if pressed.

    So is that why bowe threw his belt in the bin? It’s because he knew he couldn’t beat Lewis

    Can't remember what video it was but Rummy made a pretty convincing argument that Bowe didn't duck Lennox.
