    All good fights, for pure entertainment I think Harada vs Chang would be the one to beat

    Also,

    Harada vs Olivares
    Jack Kid Berg vs Ray Mancini, Chacon, Armstrong
    Winstone vs Pep, Pedroza, Sanchez
    Jim driscoll vs Howard Winstone (all British jab exchange!)
    Freddie Welsh vs Joe Brown

    Tried to think of some obscure ones, with some British greats.

    I've gotta say
    Froch vs Saad, Randall vs Hatton, Froch vs Benn, Hamed vs Tapia and Wilde vs Gonzalez are at the top of my Brit list

    Ooh yeah Wilde vs Gonzalez! I could write loads on that!

    Tapia vs Hamed though, I honestly see Tapia out boxing Hamed very widely. Though it would be entertaining.

    You could also have Froch vs Galindez and Qawi.

    Froch vs Greb?

    I'm pretty big in Hamed I think he'd win. But tbh there'd probably be more show boating than fighting anyway

    Would be brilliant but I think Froch would be more entertaining against power Punchers

    I'd actually be most interest in ones from fighters from around the same time.

    Jem Mace Vs Joe Coburn
    Nonpareil Jack Dempsey Vs Charlie Mitchel
    Jack McAuliffe Vs Paddy Duffy
    James J Corbett Vs Joe Goddard
    Tommy Ryan Vs Joe Walcott
    Packey McFarland Vs Benny Leonard
    Jack Dempsey Vs Harry Wills
    Sugar Ray Robinson Vs Charley Burley
    Lennox Lewis Vs Riddick Bowe

    And
    Bob Fitzsimmons Vs Harry Greb
    Muhammad Ali Vs Joe Louis

    Marciano Late TKO
    Ali Late TKO (cuts)
    Fitsimmons UD15/20
    Foreman TKO4.
    Who? Graziano as in Rocky? What? I genuinely don't know who he is
    Armstrong UD
    Robinson mid rounds TKO
    Hagler Late TKO in a bloodbath
    Ali UD15. Too quick
    Sounds like a discount Marciano vs Dempsey
    I'll take Jeffries but I don't know enough about Sullivan to be confident.

    Same as I've said. Marciano Late TKO
    Duran UD
    Jefferies UD. Sounds like a discount Marciano vs Dempsey. I don't know enough about Sullivan to pick him
    Napoles UD. If he can come in at 140. If not (at LW) then Duran UD. Or Napoles at 147 or 160
    Chang UD. To become the number 1 South Korean fight
    Cracker. I like Armstrong UD based on workrate. Excellent fight tho.
    Sanchez UD
    Tough one. I'll take Harada. He has an incredible jab and seemed to be smarter than Chang. But it would be an absolute Brawl
    I'll take Robinson on points but Steele could definitely pull it out the bag. Robinson had issues with a Jab, Steele could fight on the inside with him and would be able to outjab him
    Greb UD

    Yeah, me too. The ones that could have happened but never did are always more interesting to me than ones that never could have happened.

    Great choices by the way.

    Yes Rocky Graziano vs Arturo Gatti

    Also some of my fights had obvious winners (ex Baer vs Foreman) but I just thought they'd be entertaining

    Eh Graziano wasn't much at 147, usually drained himself to make weight there. Either way I think huge bombs would be thrown

    Actually perhaps I should set this at a catch-weight of 150
