    No, there's you, and then there's another guy named Geogre Crowcroft, I think he's French.

    That's fine.

    I was just explaining that the reason you were listed twice is because there are 2 separate posts that look as if they are new submissions while quickly combing through. I have not been looking at any of these very closely yet, and have just been keeping a running tally.

    Good list.

    Just wondering about Zale-Graziano 2. Can this really be included?

    I picked Zale vs. Graziano II for a few reasons. It was a brutal back and forth battle between two warriors who symbolized that era of middleweight boxing. Rocky overcoming the extreme heat and deep cut on his eye to stop Zale with a relentless onslaught to finally win it all is one of my favorite boxing stories. Admittedly I also included this bout for personal reasons, as it was one of the first fights my uncle showed me when I was a kid. Rocky was a hero in our Italian-American family.

    It wasn't a criticism of choosing that fight as it is a legendary, just that based on the first guiding principle (must be available on YouTube and at least 50% of the fight), it's doesn't meet that criteria, that's all...
