    Canelo is not properly appreciated. We should revel in his skill.

    JMM knockdowm of Medina in rd 2 is one of the best ive ever seen. He tearnd a suttle block with his left hand into a vicious hook that starts a beautiful 3 punch combo that floors him. If i knew how to upload i would.
    Then theres a clip where he makes Robbie Peden throw up blood between rds ( not in the criteria but had to mention it)
    Ike quartey jabbing at the mitts preparing for Forest is just amazing. What a jab. ( i guess not in criteria either but a must see for jab fans like myself)

    Sugar Ray Robinson after Graziano had clubbed him on the side of the head and put him down. Sugar Ray got up cooley set a trap for Rocky. Robinson backed into the ropes and slide to the side and spun Graziano around and loosed a 2 piece for the ages. It was so smooth.

    Holmes-Shavers I. Larry didn't even look like a heavy, he was moving so fast and so well. Picture perfect example of hitting-without-getting-hit.

    It ended perfectly, as Shavers would have been indubitably stopped in the next round. Larry peaked his performance perfectly.

    I would recommend that fight above so many as far as showcasing how to box a puncher.

    Camacho Sr's blitzkrieg of the tough as nail Bazooka Limon. Leonard's explosion against Dave Green was awesome. Joe Frazier's left hook on Ali in the FOTC 15 rd War , just as crisp as the 1st left hooks he landed the 1st few minutes of the fight . Wilfredo Benitez showcased his defensive ability in fights against a prime Ray Leonard and Prime Thomas Hearns making both of them look amateurish at certain points of the fights though he lost to both. Almost all of prime Jones Jr. fights. Though the competition is somewhat suspect.

    Always thought Donaire's finishing KO move against Vargas was pretty interesting to see.

    Something that was more impressive to me about Ali was his balance of range. There were a couple of instances there where he didn't need to move his head and the punches still wouldn't have landed, which is a flaw, but Ali's head movement was absolutely excellent
