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
1. Duran -Moore
2. Duran -Cuevas
3. Duran- Barkley
Juan Manuel Marquez
Juan Manuel Marquez
2. Pacmam 1 or 4
3. Diaz 1
Hank, Jones, Charles
Lopez vs Villamor, Sanchez, Preecha
Escalera 1, Ganigan, Pryor 1 & 2
Kittikasem 1 & 2, Soto, Hoon Cha
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.
Holmes vs Shavers II

All three fights showcased the massive heart of the Easton Assassin!
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.
Great post and a great fighter.
Arbachakov was awesome in kittikasem 1. Sharp and classy movement ; huge punches.
Wow, would love to have seen that live. Katsidis started so strong as well, unbelievable fighter was Marquez.
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
Noly v Qawi 2
Holy v Moorer 2
Holy v Mercer
Helluva career and one of the most aesthetically pleasing fighters I ever saw,
