Sorry to show my age but Pryor - Arguello 1 was awesome.
Barrera - Morales is as close as a modern fight has come

Seriously I have never seen that fight you mentioned, was it a close fight then??

BTW probably my favourite fight was when Steve "The Celtic Warrior" Collins ended nigel benns career :D

Ive seen that fight and it was great but the problem is most guys here r from a diff. generation. It is not the same watching it live than watching an old copy. For me its gotta to be Chavez Taylor 1. That is the first fight I ever saw and it is the one that got me into boxing. I was about 13 or 14 years old. I know there have been better but that one has always stayed with me.

Yup Chavez/Taylor I. That fight had it all. The speed vs the power and precision. One of the greatest I have seen for 12 almost full rounds.

Hagler/Hearns was just like a bomb going off for 9 minutes. Purely awsome...............Rockin' :boxing:

Riddick Bowe vs Andrew Golota II is my personal favorite fight. Pure slugfest, but between skilled fighters, both fighters were down in the fight and it was a seesaw battle and even had a freak unexpected ending. One of the most brutal heavyweight fights in recent history. What a fight that was Bowe was down in the second, then came back put Golota down bad in the 4th, Golota came back and knocked Bowe down in the 5th. Totally brutal fight, ended Bowe's career by his own admission and also hurt Golota's career.

YOu hardly ever see that many clean powerfull punches landed on anybody in the heavyweight division without somebody being stopped.

Romero V.S. Tapia hands down.

Mexico, as well as the united states was salivating over that fight, and the tension that was built was so thick you could cut a knife with it. I can not believe they did not make a "Legendary Nights" about that fight. It was one of the most significant fights below 130 of all time. If not THE MOST.

NOBODY and I mean NOBODY thought Tapia was going to win. Everyone rooted for him, but people figured Danny was going to run over him.


BIGGEST UPSET I HAVE EVER SEEN

greater than Tyson/Douglas IMO, because I followed the two fighters with more attention to detail.

Thanks mate - I've been called a few things in my time but never "from a different generation"
Seriously though i'ts great to see you younger guys as keen on boxing as I was at your age.
My earliest recollection is being woken by my father at four in the morning to listen to Sonny Listen fighting on the radio. It was one of those old valve radios that kept drifting off the station.
Boxing then started to appear on the TV and I was well and truly hooked.
I remember watching Buchanan beat Laguna, John H Stacy beat Napoles and then we started getting American fights on ITV.
When I saw Pryor - Arguello I thought I'd never see the likes again though I'd certainly agree Chavez - Taylor was fantastic.
Just to keep the argument going for us old timers - what about Bramble - Mancini ?

I guess your Dad is the one who planted the seed.
My Dad is also a big boxing fanatic and I follow his foot steps also.
Man you are really old school man,having to listen to the radio! :eek: 4 in the morning!

For great fights I have to mention Holyfield-Cooper. IMO its the best heavyweight fight Ive ever seen.

The best fight was back in Dragon Ball (not Z) when kid Goku fought the old Piccolo Daimoyou. The DBZ fights had too much flying around and excessive ki blasts IMO but DB was all crazy kungfu with tripping and sweeps and stuff. You can't sweep if you're flying damnit! Also a ki blast/special attack really meant something in Dragon Ball. When Goku did the kamehameha it was more of a last resort desperation move because it is so exhausting whereas in DBZ they can all shoot them off like nothing.

Damn I need to go buy some subbed Dragon Ball RIGHT NOW.

All great fights. Especially Pryor vs Arguello. The first Leonard vs Hearns battle is probably my favourite, closely followed by Argeullo vs Mancini. You gotta love action packed fights that end in a late rounds stoppage.

It's so hard to pick just one.

And a few people here have already mentioned a number of fights I would definitely put on the list, such as the Hagler - Hearns 1988 showdown and the Barrera - Morales punch fest of recent times.

However, one I really think deserves a mention is -

Alexis Arguello VS Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini in 1981. Absolutely sizzling stuff!

Hagler VS. Hearns . . . but in the current days. . . it's got to be Chico Vs. Castillo.

What would you say was the best fight you have ever watched.


I would say ward v gatti. Personally i regarded there trilogy as one long fight. Some people say hagler/hearns but that was for 7 mintues and 52 seconds. Ward v gatti lasted 90 minutes.

1)BARRERA/MORALES one of the best fights i've ever seen :boxing:

2)Castillo/Corrales (Chico's one round comeback has to be the the greatest comeback on a round ever!

3)Hagler / Hearns

castillo corrales was my favorite to watch, becuause of how i watched it. i was playing poker at a buddies house, and flipping through channels, and i saw the fight on, late "not the first airing" so naturally i put it on, and eventually, all of us were going nuts watching the fight, and we had all forgotten about the game, the fight was so ****ing good... it was just awesome, it was like 2:00 in the morning...so yeah, had i seen ali foreman or ali fraizer live, that would have been the best but...i wasnt alive

I'd say Gatti-Ward I was definitely the most dramatic and exciting. Round 9, GAtti getting back up after a left hook to the body by Ward and going back to war for the next 2:30, doesn't get any better than that.

The third fight is always the fight that will make people think who's the better one. And the fact that this probably was the greatest fight of all time makes you wonder WHY, because it was so anti climatic in the end. Frazier could've had a ko, Ali could've had a ko. You just can't know these things for sure.

Naseem is one of the most unortherdox i've ever seen he strides from left hand to right hand…stranley enought it works big time for him because he knows how to play the game that way…and also he's a masive showboater witch is one of the things that i like about him!

I think Naseem VS Morales would be a top 10 fight or any of the other 2 you said!

It depends on what you're looking for.
If its pure brutality - Castillo vs. Corrales I and Gatti-Ward I are the best.
If you're looking for a great ending - Castillo vs. Corrales I (again), Ali-Foreman, Taylor-Chavez I.
A masterful performance - Clay-Liston I and recently I'm a fan of Hopkins over Tarver, that was the way every champ should go out.

The greatest fight I ever saw was Jack Johnson vs Stanley Ketchel. A horrible mismatch of weight and skill. Ketchel was the middleweight champion who only looked like he weighed 150lbs. Back in those days, boxing was still illegal in most states so there was no way to regulate the weight classes. Johnson could have easily knocked him out anytime but he loved to inflict punishment, with a smile no doubt. Late in the fight, a bloody-faced Ketchel jumped and socked Jack so hard, Jack spun around before hitting the canvas. Jack was crawling on the mat trying to get up. He barely made the count, getting up at 9. Jack then hit Ketchel so hard, they both hit the floor. Jack put his whole body weight in the punch while Ketchel was running forward. He hit Ketchel so hard, his front teeth were embedded in Jack's glove. Ketchel was knocked out for 10 minutes. If Ketchel wasnt so anxious to finish Johnson off after the knockdown, he could have won. He should have never ran toward Jack with his guard down

in a way this is a silly thread best fight ever is always opinion and well for me there is a huge list.
Tua vs Ibeabuchi was great
gatti vs ward all 3
Castillo vs Coralles 1

those are probably my favs. I have only been watching boxing since around 1988 though
ive seen alot of classic bouts on espn classic that were pretty damn good though too. I remember waking up @ 9 @ night from a random nap and turning it over to shotime to see the Castillo-Coralles fight and wow that had to be the best ever. You cant ask for anymore drama than that gave us............ R.I.P Chico we all miss you.
