    Personally, I find that one to be fairly one-sided and dull.

    Far too many for me to narrow down to one, much less even a top 25.

    Martinez-Williams 1
    Toney-Jirov
    De La Hoya-Quartey
    Leonard-Hearns 1
    Pacquiao-Morales 1
    Pavlik-Miranda
    Trinidad-Vargas
    Calzaghe-Kessler
    Guerrero-Berto
    Salido-Juanma 1&2

    To name a few.

    That was beatdown. Lewis massacred a clearly past it Tyson.
    That KO was quite sad to be honest.

    Now this was something special:

    Bowe-Golota 1&2

    In spite of all the fouls from The Foul Pole, both matches are kind of masterpieces.

    From a technical perspective:

    Ward vs Kovalev I. That was some serious next level boxing and it set the new skill bar for the weight classes that are middle or higher weight classes.

    Ortiz vs Wilder I. Next fight to set new standards, maybe not the most technical affair but in terms of dynamic and athleticism in hw definitely watchable.

    Is it me, or is the the thread title phased kind of weird? Like it’s written by someone who doesn’t know much about boxing? Plus, I had no idea Tyson and Lewis fought twice. Anyway, my all time favorite fight is Hamed-Kelley
