There are a lot of old fights that just cannot be watched today, because it wasnt taped or the footage dissapeared. What fights would you want to see the most, if you could get footage of it?(Also because a lot of the film is crap, you can include ones that exist but are really hard to appreciate because the quality is so bad).

For me its...
Greb vs Tunney 1, or any meaningful Greb fight for that matter
Locche vs Cervantes 1(more than just the last round)

Damn, Greb-Tunney was the first one I was going to list.

Would love to have the Langford bouts with McVey, Jeanette, Wills.

Maybe it's out there, but I wish more of Sugar Ray Robinson's welterweight reign was filmed. The mostly recognized greatest ever at his best, and I've seen little of it.

Anything of Young Griffo
All 5 of the Archie Moore-Harold Johnson fights in entirety
More of Johnson in general
Robinson-Gavilan
Locche-Ortiz in entirety

Pep-Saddler II.
Most interesting for me would probably be a London Prize Ring championship fight though.

Im pretty much satisfied with Harold Johnson(compared ot the lack of footage of certain other fighters), since his most meaningful victory over Charles is already available and in pretty good shape.

such a masterclass in boxing technique, by both men.

I've seen Langford V Jeannette........... Sam drops some great bombs, and Jeannette seems somehow quite modern in his style, there are still a lot of fighters with hands low and shapshooting, thats what I see when I watch Langford V Jeannette X

What this guy said. Heck if I could have HD quality vids of his entire career then i'd die happy.

Can we count an amateur fight, I wish someone had recorded the fight between Gerald McClellan and Roy Jones in the amateurs.
