    If they happened today.
    One that immediately comes to mind is Chavez vs Taylor. Forums, YouTube and social media would be on fire. It would be epic.

    Thrilla in Manila. For the action, it's fame, and ending.

    Great one, it was action packed and had so much controversy.

    Ali vs Doug Jones, the crowd seemed to hate the decision can't imagine we would do any better.

    Ali vs Frazier 1 maybe.

    The Tyson/Douglas RBR thread would have been epic just because only true fans would have stayed up for it.

    I think the internet would have lost it´s mind when Tyson bit Holyfields ear off.
    People love crazy **** like that.
    Epic fights go only so far. Controversial outcomes a bit further(Pacquiao vs Bradley was a meme on 9gag). But Tyson biting Holyfield? That is next level!
