    We’ve been taking nominations for rounds for almost three weeks. We had the Round One thread.

    You can find the link at the OP thread on this and nominate any Rounds 3-15 but we’ve already posted the nominees for Round Two.

    Of course I’ll count ‘write-in’ votes for rounds that weren’t nominated.

    Man, picking between Norris/Waters and Chacon/Edwards was like picking between children. Ultimately went with Norris/Walters, but only by the skin of my teeth. There was just too good an 'underdog' story with the way Waters fought.

    Reminder: We have 24 hours left to vote and still need to break the tie.

    Guys, I can't believe we had about 30 votes for the 1st round and only 10 for the 2nd. Man, these were some kick-a** rounds. Where did everybody go????

    Hagler-Hearns is the reason why. I'm sure some people will have automatically voted for it without watching the others. I suspect the same thing will happen with round 9 and Gatti-Ward, though I hope I'm wrong.

    Fair weather fans. They need to go back to the general forum and stay there. This is where history is conducted.

    Voting closes this evening. Please give these great rounds (you can skip Brewer-Echols) a look and be counted!
