    Price vs Povetkin and khan vs Alvarez was two

    I thought fury vs Wilder could go badly wrong also.

    Wilder vs Ortiz 2 I'm mildly concerned for Ortiz

    Spinks v Tyson. I thought there was a chance that Spinks would get severely injured in that fight.

    Spinks v Tyson. I thought Spinks could get hurt pretty bad in that fight.
    Ali v Holmes. Ali was obviously shot and, depending on Holmes mood, could have got hurt pretty badly also.

    Loma/Crolla, considering Crolla had already sustained severe head trauma was worrying in that one

    I think everyone knew price v POV was gonna end the way it did.

    I can’t think of many more where people were so sure that a man was getting seriously knocked out, with potential health risks

    Nah he ha been in so many wars by that point, like I said he looked wounded when the fireworks went off. Plus he had the kiss of death buddy McGirt in his corner...

    And of course Floyd was really a handful during that brief stint at 140, he was still sitting down on his punches and aggressive

    Roy Jones vs Vinnie Paz. I really thought there was a possibility that Roy would literally break his neck again.

    No he had to rely on that NY doc to stop the fight. not to save Tony's eye but to save Cotto quitting on his knees AGAIN!!!!!! fight was a carbon copy of fight 1 Tony was zoning in for the kill despite having only one good eye

    Had Ward stepped up to the plate and fought GGG I'd have feared for his health and safety

    The same was before Ward fought Kovalev and i think i remember you saying Ward was to croak in those fights. Lets be real , Ward would've beat the giblets clean out of GGG:sisi1:sisi1:sisi1

    Mundine Horn & Mundine Green 2 not only Mundine's age but the weight Yo Yoing he was doing for both fights was crazy.
