This is something that doesn't get talked about much, but throughout history, there has to be some give and take fights that correctly ended in a draw, but I can't think of any besides the Pacquiao vs. Marquez fight.

Are there any great draws, and has there ever been a fight of the year that ended in a draw?

I had it even. I thought Wright had more "clear" rounds than Taylor but ended up with a card of 114-114..

The first fight between Micheal Brodie and In-Jin Chi was an absolutely brutal draw. Brodie really gave it his all in this fight.

Leonard vs Hearns 2 was a good fight that ended in a draw, albeit disputed.

Certainly greater than just a good fight,it was an absolute war throughout.Even though Leonard's chin was slipping at this point in his career,he took so many hard clean shots from Hearns that would have knocked out most fighters at that weight class,and Hearns showed great heart after being badly hurt by Leonard many times throughout the fight.


Leonard made the fight alot more difficult than it should have been.Hearns at that point had alot more in the tank that Leonard but he didn't have the same legs as he had when they first fought.Every time Leonard put together his punches and stepped inside,away from Hearns's range,he had Hearns in trouble and could hurt him rather easily,but he waited too long and wasn't consistent enough and any time you are within Hearns's range then you're out of your depth.

Yeah, I understated about how good the fight was, it was a war. A little ironic that Leonard took the fight because he thought Hearns was shot but he ended up looking like the more shopworn fighter in the fight.

Yeah, that was great. I had it the opposite to you though with Wright winning it by a couple of points.

Hearns should have gotten the nod. That fight is one of my earliest memories of actually watching a PPV.

The first fight between James Toney and Mike McCallum was excellent. That was a showcase of two skilled technicians doing what they do best. However you scored it, it was a fantastic fight for a boxing "purist".

Great call, I watched that fight when I woke up this morning.
