But never did? Name the best rematch's that never happened.

But once one has been named, it CAN'T be named again. It will make the thread more interesting and less boring.

I'll Start
Sam Langford vs Stanley Ketchel
Sam Langford vs Jack Johnson
Winky Wright vs Fernando Vargas
Vitali Klitschko vs Lennox Lewis
Kostya Tsyzu vs Vince Phillips

That would have been good, but Taylor may not have been able to replicate what he did in the first fight.

Would have loved to see Winky and Jermain Taylor fight a rematch.
Obviously Jones vs. Hopkins much earlier.

Wish I could have seen Sonny Liston fight Ali a 3rd time. That second fight stunk.

Foreman vs Lyle, just to see if they could have done it again!

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad vs James Scott

Carlos Zarate vs Lupe Pintor

Carlos Zarate vs Wilfredo Gomez

Gerrie Coetzee vs Renaldo Snipes. Bad decision.

Floyd Patterson fought a draw w/ Jerry Quarry in their first fight. Then Quarry won a disputed majority decion in their 2nd fight. Would have been interested in a 3rd fight.

Hagler vs Leonard

Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClelland. Would have loved to see them go at it again. Feel terrible for the G-Man though.....

Larry Holmes vs Ken Norton

Tyson vs Buster Douglas

Foreman vs Ali. Could he do it again?

Mickey Walker vs Jack Sharkey

Sammy Angott vs Willie Pep. Angott handed Pep his first loss in 63 fights.

my bad, i didn't read through the comments...
robinson/maxim for the lhw title. he was winning the fight until the heat took a toll on him and suffered his first and only stoppage. imagine if he would've faced maxim later that year instead of maxim/moore, he would've most likely have gotten the decision. we would've most likely had robinson/moore the following year, one can only imagine...

Sam Langford vs Stanley Ketchel is not one that "Should of" happened. You can't exactly blame the rematch not materialising on Ketchel considering he got shot and died.

Since when does that make a difference? It still should have happened if he didn't get shot and die. ***** happens. I don't think this threads about why these fights didn't happen but what fights would you have like to see happen again if they could have.

"Should of" implies that someone was held accountable and stopped it happening. There was no choice in this matter.

And what kind of ludacris statement in "**** happens". Of course bad things happen but, dismissing a shooting as "**** happens" is ridiculous.

Mayweather Jr-Big Show :D




we got a winner!


bowe and lewis fought in the Amateurs
i guess a fight between the two would have been like a rematch


winky wright and jermain taylor deserved a rematch. And to par the course for his career, winky was hosed out of it.

lewis and klitschko II would have been modern warfare again
what a fight that was



now, i'm not saying this one needs to happen, or would be on the level of significance of many of the obvious selections for necessary rematches, but as a new englander i'd like to see chad dawson's best brought out again and see him fight adamek at HW before they end their careers

moving to eventually to HW has been chad's intention throughout. he's not a small dude.
i dont think he has much of a chance against either klitschko, but if adamek has a belt after wladimir and vitali retire (i'm thinking before the end of 2013 for both of them,) that is a huge fight in jersey and something i'd travel to see

A Hearns vs Hagler repeat would have been intresting, i think Tommy would try and box from the get go but i:luvbed: still fancy Marvin there

This one might still happen, this year even it looks like - Cotto vs Margarito for redemption! :boxing:

I think Arguello would beat him alot more decisively in a rematch.

Why should Resto have gotten paid another nickel for boxing after what he did?
