    Well considering I don't like watching fights for entertainment in black and white I'll do Dillian Whyte instead of Ezzard

    1. Whyte vs Chisora 1

    This was the first full fight I watched live, I didnt care about boxing then but I loved watching it and had me sat on my floor screaming at the TV things like "go on son knock him out"

    2. Parker vs Whyte

    Watched this on the train with my dad and I ended up spending like £30 off my card on data to keep it on, from the controversy of the Headbutt KD to that flawless left hook in 9th and the whole of the 12th round was just a great scrap.

    3. Whyte vs Browne

    Not so much for the fight, it was a very memorable beatdown tho. I was at my mates for his birthday, it was just a great night but I was the only one who cared about the fight

    HMs, Chisora vs Whyte 2, Whyte vs AJ

    I love the Katsidis fight too. I was at that fight. Heart stopped when Katsidis landed that bomb and then Marquez came right back at him.

    Leonard
    Hearns #1 Leonard had to survive possibly the most dangerous puncher in welterweight history, and it's most underrated boxer, changed tactics mid fight and became the hunter stopped Hearns in 14rd.
    Benitez #2 Possibly the most gifted defensive fighter in history, A brilliant exhibition of tactics for both Fighters with Leonard figuring out the puzzle stopped Benitez in the 15rd. A fight only a purists can love.
    Duran#3 The classic Brawl in Montreal, a losing effort for Leonard, but a fight that proved more about his determination and heart than any fight he had before. Again, he showed a different aspect of his game, and proved he could fight on the inside with possibly the greatest pressure fighter in history. ( some believe it was a stupid fight by Leonard, some believe it was Durans peak fight, I personally believe it was both) and absolutely nothing should be taken away from Duran for this win.

    Holyfield was my favourite fighter to watch although I prefer my holy trinity of Charles, Patterson and Spinks as people (what little I know of them).

    But I could watch the following fights all day.

    Holy v Dokes
    Holy v Bowe 1
    Holy v Cooper

    or I could go for

    Holy v Stewart 1
    Holy v Qawi 1
    Holy v Bowe 2

    But I woudn't mind having to settle for

    Holy v Foreman
    Holy v Tyson
    Holy v Bowe 3

    Failing that

    Noly v Qawi 2
    Holy v Moorer 2
    Holy v Mercer

    Helluva career and one of the most aesthetically pleasing fighters I ever saw,
