cple I'm surprised you didn't include Louis-Schmeling II, given your avatar.

Maybe it was a bit of a blowout, but it's certainly one of the most famous fights of all time.

Yeah, Louis-Schmeling II probably is the most significant fight of all-time. However, like you said, it was a bit one-sided.

On another not, a third meeting between two fights is usually called a "rubbermatch". Rematches are usually for two fighters' second fight.

cple....

You really know your ****. Great choices !
Saad Muhammad-Marvin Johnson II, also, is one of the best fights you could see, though not as great as their first fight.

Didn't Chacon & Bazooka have 4 fights ? I'm pretty sure they did, the last one being a ridiculous war, won by Chacon.

Thrilla in Manilla is the greatest rematch.

RJJ-Tarver gets my vote. Talks crap at the Presser, after the referee's instructions, and finally knocks him out.
Talk about luck...
What would you choose?
1)Knocking out Superman with a lucky eyes closed roundhouse? or
2)Hitting the Mega-million?

Ali-Frazier II sucked. Didn't Ali win by a wide margin?

I've never seen Ali Fraiser 2. Although, i own 1 and 3 on VHS. I'd say Ali Frasier 3 is probably the best I've seen.

Worst one is defintaly Tyson Holyfield II.

I've seen Ali v Frazier II and it seemed like Frazier's heart just wasn't in like their first one. I think Ali v Frazier III is the best rematch but I thought Gatti v Ward III was good too.

True. Gatti v Ward was made better by the fact that they didn't hate each other.

Bobby Chacon - Rafael "Bazooka" Limon IV is one of the best rematches in my book. Here, watch this fight again,

Jeffies Sharkey 2.

Fullmer Robinson 2, and I though in fight 3. Thsos were great fights.

The Robinson Baliso series needs to be mention.

Ted Kid Lewis and Jack Brittion also needs a mention. They were flopping that title back and froth.

Marciano vs Charles 2, while not as great as fight 1. Was a pretty decent rematch.

Louis vs ALL in rematchs. He just seems to destory guys in rematchs.

Patterson did a better job in the rematch vs Ali.

And Patterson vs Ingo 2.

of couse Ali Fraizer will always be mention.

Gatti Ward fights

Holyfiled Bowe and Fan man :D .

of couse Morreals and Barrea are there.

Louis vs ALL in rematches. He just seems to destroy guys in rematches.

Patterson did a better job in the rematch vs Ali.


I was extremely impressed with Patterson in the rematch with Ali.
He moved in and out, landing short combinations for several rounds. Ali was confused for a few rounds, but finally went after Patterson and cut him badly enough that the fight was soon stopped.

Joe Louis was awesome at beating guys worse in the rematches than he did the 1st time:

Max Schmeling (lost the 1st, but later destroyed him in 2 rds.)
Abe Simon (March 1941 13th round tko; March 1942 6th round tko)
Buddy Baer (May 1941 7th rd. DQ; Jan. 1942 1st round ko)
Jersey Joe Walcott (Dec. 1947 split dec; June 1948 11th round ko)
Billy Conn (June 1941 13th round ko; June 1946 8th round ko)
Arturo Godoy (Feb. 1940 split dec; June 1940 8th round tko)
Bob Pastor (Jan. 1937 UD; Sept. 1939 ko 11)

Other guys that were great in rematches:

Hagler:
Willy Monroe
Bobby "Boogaloo" Watts
Sugar Ray Seales
Vito Antuofermo
Mustafa Hamsho
Fulgencio Obelmejias

Lennox Lewis:
Evander Holyfield
Hasim Rahman
Oliver McCall

Sugar Ray Robinson:
Randy Turpin
Jake La Motta
Gene Fullmer
Carmen Basilio

In the 2nd Ali-Frazier fight Ali decided to do a lot of tying up on the inside, especially holding Frazier behind the head. Since he didn't do so much of it the 1st time they fought it surprised Frazier, who wasn't prepared for all the holding by Ali. Ali managed to win a lot of rounds by landing a lot of jabs and a few right hands and avoid taking too much punishment from Frazier on the inside. It worked, although I was disgusted.
