    Not the most anticipated, but ones that actually delivered in the ring on fight night.

    And let's set the qualifying criteria as three good fights on the card.

    Which shows would you go back in time to be at?

    Hearns-Benitez was pretty good. Only had an all-time great war on the undercard, and a damn good tactical match for a main event.

    Those Don King supercards in the early to mid 90s were pretty mad.

    6 future HOFers - including Greb vs Walker as the main event. How can you go wrong with that?
