Lots of great fights. Some I need to check out. Thanks guys.
I dont agree with the list.
Joe louis vs max schmeling are two of the biggest fights ever done no matter the weight in boxing history. An impressive duo of fights. There will never be something like that again.
Jonhson vs ketchel is something absolutelly impressive that you will never see again ever.
They deserve to be at least in the top 15 top 20, no doubt. 25 are too much to enter into details, but this list posted lacks of too many important and really good fights.
Thanks to the OP for the effort. Three things:  Think that Baer/Braddock belongs somewhere;  Ditto with Tunney/Dempsey ; and  would bump Holmes/Norton up a nudge
1. Klitchko vs Joshua
2. Bowe vs Holyfield 2
3. Morrison vs Ruddock
4. Holyfield vs Stewart
5. Bowe vs Golota 2
6. Tyson vs Ruddock 2
7. Lewis vs klitchko
8. Foreman vs Lyle
9. Holyfield vs Dokes
10. Sanders vs Rahman
11. Holmes vs Norton
12. Tua vs Ibeubuchi
13. Ali vs Frazier 3
14. Breazeale vs Ugonoh
15. Moorer vs Cooper
16. Marciano vs charles
17. Holyfield vs Mercer
18. V.klitchko vs Sanders
19. Holmes vs Cooney
20. Ali vs Foreman
21. Marciano vs Walcott
22. Whyte vs Chisora
23. Lewis vs Mercer
24. Golota vs Pa'hua
25. Morrison vs williams
Wasnt actually sure where what would go ,pieced tthis together very fast...obviously would have to watch most fights again and swith just a few....I think Wlad vs Joshua is arguably number one of not just the fight but how it played out in such dramatic fashion.
Print that list it is just toilet paper.
"I find HW mostly boring, even when the fights are good."
Johnson vs Ketchel...yes we will never see such a mismatch of a 160 pounder against a 215 pounder...correct! What a sight to behold by todays standards......
Choc, I don't agree with all of Galvatron's list either, but you know what? He's only the third person in two pages who's bothered to post a list of his own, and for that I commend him. He put in some work and tried to kick the conversation a bit farther down the road with his own opinions. I'm gonna look into the one's on his list I haven't seen yet.
As far as the three fights you mentioned go, I've seen the Louis Schmeling fights and they didn't stick with me. The first might be worth revisiting, but the second is probably only of historical importance and belongs in a second tier with other short one-sided beat downs. Ketchel vs Johnson was a freakshow fight, a middleweight versus a cruiserweight, and a foregone conclusion.
This fight is for the history, you LITERALLY will never be able to watch something like that again. NEVER. Because rules have changed.
You probably had to google that fight, dude, you dont have even schmeling vs louis in your list, because probably you think that schmeling is the name of some cigarette brand or something like that. And you have josua vs wlad the #1, lol at you.
You didnt like my opinion? Ok, just print that list, like you said you'll do, and leave me alone.
Nah, I'd have respected a list with a little bit of effort put in it. Like the OP's, I dont agree with him, I respect it anyway, I just said "I dont agree, I think that it lacks of some fights". But galvatron what wrote was an agenda not a list, I'd say more, an agenda of a guy who doesnt know sht about box.
EDIT: regarding the fights, johnson's fight is one of the most iconic moments in boxing history, unrepeatable. And louis vs schmeling fight is the most important fight in boxing history, hands down. You need a third world war to have the possibility to have a fight like that again. Those fights are pure history, and even if johnson has more meaningful fights (as I think he has, like Jeffries', another piece of human history) the fight vs ketchel has one of the most impressive endings you'll ever see.
I've always been partial to Holmes vs Norton. A real barn burner.
But there have been so many great ones. A lot that went completely under the radar.
Here's a short wild fight:
Great little scrap that.
This great fight never gets brought up.
In Vitaly Klitschko vs. Corrie Sanders was a lot more action than in Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko, almost non-stop: They threw punches in bunches at the same time, while showed tremendous determination and heart, although Klitschko avioded most by his reflexes and upper-bodymovement, this "Sniper" (who was more fit than against the brother, particular with better stamina) would have stopped Joshua in 1 - 2 rounds.
