    I vote Crolla - Linares 2. What did people think would happen differently the second time?

    Relatively recently Gilberto Ramirez v Jessie Hart 2. What a load of crap.

    Surely the Bellew v Cleverly re- match deserves a mention.
    Proper non entertainment that was.

    Windmill v Buffet Stiverne 2 was a joke

    Calzaghe v Veit is a good shout, but tbf to him he got himself into the mandatory spot twice.

    Looking at your post reminds me that Wilder v Stiverne 2 was also a complete waste of time.

    My bad, just seen this and quoted it on post above. Didn’t see you had already put it one above.

    Awful fight.

    The original pointless rematch was Patterson vs Liston.

    36 year old David Haye had already looked like a shot fighter before his leg injury in his first fight with Tony Bellew so it was just wishful thinking to think that he could win a rematch a year later.

    i was scrolling down thinking the same you beat me to it. Although to be fair I thought the first fight was a waste of time. If haye was a horse he would have been turned unto a pot of glue donkeys years ago.
