What fight would you say had the highest level of skill-level between the two participants? Marquez-Casamayor and Marquez-Barrera are my two favorite chess-match style fights, wondering what you guys had to say about it. The Casamayor-Marquez fight in particular was awe-inspiring the way the two of them used every trick in the book to pry open the other's defense. Good thing my man came out on top.

I would say Ali vs Frazier 1 because they had opposing skills and technics: one held his gloves high, the other down. Ali wanted to fight from a distance "is that the correct way to say that in English?" Frazier wanted a closer fight, etc... i could go on...

So you get to see a lot in that great fight !

Thanks guys! I love these chessmatch style fights, I'll be watching the **** out of them. But I watched Corrales-Castillo and that was a killer inside fight.
