Barrera vs. McKinney. No doubt. What a goddamn war.

Roberto Duran - Ray Leonard I or Wilfredo Vazquez vs Antonio Avelar.
Ask me tomorrow and you'll probably get 2 different ones.

Mike McCallum vs James Toney. Classic fight for the purist. Excellent display on counterpunching, infighting, defense, pretty much everything.

Foreman Lyle and Hagler Hearns are at the top of the list. Griffith Paret III was such a sad affair for such a good fight.
Ali Frazier I FoTC of course is there too.

The first fights between Corrales/Castillo and Morales/Barrera come to mind right away. If I took the time to really think about this my memory would come up with an endless list of classics from the past.

1)Hagler-Hearns....my all-time favorite fighter winning his biggest fight after a short fight filled with as much tension and excitement as you could ever ask for.
2) Chavez-Taylor I....two awesome fighters at their peaks, showing you everything boxing has to offer. Incredible exchanges and work done by both, with an incredible and controversioal finish.
3) Coralles-Catsillo I.....simply the most savage and brutal fight I've seen, with an almost surreal final round/finish.

I really like the Ward/Gatti trilogy... Tyson vs Holyfield... Duran vs Leonard --> all great fights. I can probably sit here for hours naming others!
