Foreman Moorer hands down.

Perhaps Chavez Taylor as well? I thought Chavez was winning pretty convincingly before he was shucka'd with 3 seconds to go.

Felix came back against Oscar. I mean I still think he loss but he still came from behind and made it real close. Deserves a mention I think.

Froch over Taylor? That was pretty cool.

Rocky Marciano - Jersey Joe Walcott

I've seen this fight so many times and I'm not disagreeing with you, as everybody seems to have that opinion, but I just don't think Rocky was losing as bad as everybody thought when he knocked out Joe!!

I don't think you can really top a knockout with 2 seconds left in the fight like Chavez did to Taylor.

Corralles coming back from two knockdowns against Castillo is pretty damn close though.

I heard Jorge Castro over John David Jackson was an amazing comeback, Apparently Castro had lost pretty much every round until the 9th when the referee was just about to stop the fight and as he jumped in Castro landed a huge right hand which knocked Jackson down. The referee started counting and Jackson got up, but was then stopped with the follow up.

I havent seen the fight though. Think im going to download it and check it out tommorow.

Mike Weaver-John Tate is one of my favorites but Archie Moore-Durelle I is great too.

Castro-John D.Jackson and Carbajal-Arce deserve mention.

I loved the Toney-Nunn comeback. Although Toney was holding his own, he was down a hell of a lot of rounds when he got the KO.

Eubank-Watson II was one of the best comebacks I have personally seen, injuries aside.

micky ward planting a left hook to the liver of some sanchez guy...

roy jones & the HBO commentators on board were really hurling some nasty, degrading comments towards ward... then the punishing body shot came... all of a sudden rjj & the crew begun eating crow...

then if i may add, the gerry penalosa vs johnny gonzales fight...

& of course the jackson-graham fight...

Cotto-Margarito anyone?

Margarito's down 6-0, 5-1 when he starts turning that fight around. If Librado Andrade wouldn't have gotten hosed against Bute, he'd be up there too. Bute beat the count, but he was in no shape to continue the fight, worse condition than Taylor.

The Mike Weaver/John Tate and Foreman/Moorer were two of the biggest.

Someone mentioned Ward/Sanchez but Ward/Reggie Green was big and Saoul Mamby/Gary Hinton too

The David Izon-Derrick Jefferson fight is usually brought up in topics such as this.To me,the way the fight was stopped prevents it from being listed high in these type of discussions.


I've always felt that Mercante Jr gave Izon every chance in the fight and gave Jefferson almost nothing.



Jefferson looked a half decent fighter at that time.




Also,Bonecrusher Smith knocking out Bruno in the very last round,after losing almost every single round of the fight,deserves a mention.

Audley Harrison vs Michael Sprott II was not only a great comeback but a ****ing Brutal KO.

Gatti-Rodriguez is another.

I just watched it. Jorge Castro vs John David Jackson is by far the best comeback I have ever seen. Jackson was beating Castro up badly, His eyes were swelling badly and he had a huge cut right on his eyelid. Just as the referee was about to stop the fight Castro connected with a huge left hook and floored Jackson in the 9th round, who got up but was stopped with the follow up.

This is a must see fight. I encourage others to watch it.

Personally wouldn't call that too much a comeback. That's more a great example of a great fighter outclassing a good one, as Kellerman said after.

Short fights but I think would still qualify:

Hearns v Barkley

Jackson v Graham

Bute fought Andrade in a rematch about 1 year later and he KO'd Andrade in round 4 by a body shot. Also Taylor lost his rematch to Chavez and in the first fight,Taylor spent days if not weeks in a hospital and never was the same fighter after that. Bute in the first fight never went to hospital and suffered no bad injuries, his career is still going great, he's an undeafeted WC... i respect your opinion, i just wanted to correct the condition of Taylor after his fight compare to the one of Bute. i saw both fight, i had a poster of Taylor vs Chavez, i like those classic fights. Also Stephane Ouellet lost his fight against Dave Hilton while there was only 15 sec. left, i was there and i couldn't believe it !

So how about it fellas, what are some of the greatest come from behind wins you've ever seen?

Chavez-Taylor is a good one.

That was a gift win from referee Richard Steele. It's because of this fight that Steele gets booed to this day whenever he's introduced. He deserves it. Anyway, in answer to the question, I recently say Kevin Kelley vs. Ricardo Rodriguez. I think this originally aired on ESPN. It looked like he was done and about 2 or 3 rounds later Kelley lands a big left to score the KO, great comeback IMO.

Another great one I should have remembered as Marciano is one of my favorites.

Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor: At the end of Round 11 Taylor was leading lopsidedly on all 3 scorecards (107-102 on one and 108-101 on the other two; that means 8-3 in rounds on one card and 9-2 in rounds on the other). Then, he continued to win for the first 2 minutes of the final round, Round 12, until in the last minute Chavez made an incredible counter-attack to stop the fight with 2 seconds left.

I saw that fight on live TV. It was the opening match on a JC Chavez PPV card. And it was just as amazing as you described.

Eubank-Watson 2.

Watson was already well ahead on the scorecards and even looked close to stopping an exhausted Eubank at the end,but then he got nailed with that uppercut and it was all over from then on.
