"Fight of the Century" at No31 ?
No Thriller in Manilla ?
No Foreman vs Lyle ?
No Gatti fights ?

I never really enjoyed watching Muhammad Ali, just didn't like his style. The reason I chose the Fight of the Century over the Thrilla in Manila is that both men were closer to their respective primes and I just found it more entertaining. Foreman-Lyle was just a mistake on my part, I would of put it somewhere in between 20-10. I like Gatti but I don't know why but I have never been able to sit through many of his fights, I liked his first fight with Ward and his two fights with Robinson but I wouldn't be honest if I put them in my top 50.

But not the 1st fight?

Yes, it was a great fight but I couldn't sleep that night after Hearns, my favorite fighter at the time, lost. My father took me to see the fight at MSG on the big screen, and we were so upset that he lost. I was so disappointed, especially since hearns had the decision well in hand.

Ah thats fair enough.
I thought that you would have been gutted that Hearns lost that one he was boxing as well as I ever saw him until Barkley caught him.
