I would wan't to see the best fighters from the 80's against the best from the last decade. Holmes vs. Klitschko, Hagler vs. Hopkins, Hearns vs. Mayweather, Duran vs. Pacquiao, De La Hoya vs. Hearns, Roy Jones vs anyone below heavyweight.

1900-1920 with 1990-2010. Just because I want to see all those old-timers.

But let's see...

Jack Dempsey vs. Klitschko brothers is really the matchup that jumped out at me
Jack Johnson vs. Mike Tyson
Roy Jones and Bernard Hopkins vs. Bob Fitzsimmons
Stanley Ketchel vs. James Toney (SLUGFEST)
Jimmy Wilde vs. Ricardo Lopez would have just been a beautiful thing to see.

Dempsey vs Tyson would be cool.

That's not a fight for women and children, I'll tell you that much. That is a MAN'S FIGHT!

I could not go past combining the 40s with the 70s. Hard to top the matches which would result.

I'd like to take the middleweights from around 1975-1985......Monzon, Hagler, Hearns, Bennie Briscoe, Vito Antuofermo, Alan Minter, Rodrigo Valdez, "Cyclone" Hart, Willie Monroe, Bobby Watts, Hamsho, etc against the middleweights of about 1948-1958.....Ray Robinson, Rocky Graziano, Jake LaMotta, Marcel Cerdan, Randy Turpin, Bobo Olson, Paul Pender, Gene Fulmer, Carmen Basilio, Tony Zale.

Robinson vs Monzon or Graziano vs Hagler would be awesome. As would most of the other boxers of that earlier period.

Have to cheat a little and throw a plug in for the heavyweights of the 1970's vs the heavyweights of the 1980's.

Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Young, Norton, Lyle, Quarry, Jimmy Ellis, Earnie Shavers, Stan Ward, Bonavena of the 70's vs Larry Holmes, Mike Tyson, Witherspoon, Dokes, Greg Page, Pinklon Thomas, Berbick, Tony Tucker, Bonecrusher Smith, Gerrie Coetzee, Bernardo Mercardo, Tony Tubbs & Randy Cobb of the 1980's. I think the 1970's batch beats the heck out of most of the crew from the 1980's, but still I think there'd be some good match ups.
