    The Rogan Skelton fight if anyone wants to see it. Try watching the first five rounds and tell me you're not entertained.

    I don't think that's underrated. I've seen it on a Top 100 Most Exciting Fights of All Time list and a Top 12 Heavyweight Slugfests list.

    My error. I was thinking of Jeanette-McVey. I don't remember that fight too well, just that I didn't enjoy it.
