    Was the Don King card with with two actual world title HW fights featuring Ruiz-Golota as the main event in addition to other big names on the bill such as Chris Byrd, Evander Holyfield, Hasim Rahman, Jameel McCline and Oliver McCall, one of the most stacked if not the most stacked heavyweight fight card in boxing history?

    I remember this card, the Golota Ruiz fight was pretty good...

    King had a similar card around the same time featuring John Ruiz vs Fres Oquendo.

    This was hands down the worst fight I'd ever seen until Klitschko vs Fury

    Yes, Ruiz-Oquendo was just a few months before Ruiz-Golota. Did you attend the Ruiz-Golota card live in New York?

    Fair example, though I think Rahman, McCall, Byrd, McCline, Ruiz, Golota edge that in this case. I appreciate your input.
