I watched the Ringside marathon. It was actually really interesting. There was a lot of good footage, especially the behind the scenes stuff about Ali/Fraizer. I wish they could have gone past the 70s though. They gave about 4 minutes to the Holyfield/Bowe rivalry and thats it.

I think THE rivalry is Ali-Frazier. What didn't it have? First fight was between two undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champs. ENormous hype, and amazing fight. Both fighters taunted each other in and out of the ring.Second fight, Ali gets his revenge. Then obviously, the third fight which is considered by many the greatest fight of all time. Frazier hated Ali, Ali had taunted Frazier to ****, and it was a war. By far the greatest ring rivalry, and my favourite.

Gatti-Ward wasn't that much of a rivalry IMO. They were great friends. Morales-Barrera is a rivalry.

Jimmy Bivins was a durable and long-lasting world-class fighter:

http://boxrec.com/boxer_display.php?boxer_id=009974

who fought as a light heavy until he was about 24 years old and then as a small heavyweight for the rest of his career. He ended up with 112 fights and had good rivalries with several excellent light heavyweights and heavyweights in the 1940s and early to mid 1950s. Archie Moore and Ezzard Charles usually got the better of him but he did rather well against most of his other opponents.

Bivins vs. Archie Moore:
August 1945: Bivins by 6th round ko
Sept. 1947: Moore by 9th round ko
June 1948: Moore by Majority decision
April 1949: Moore by 8th round ko
Feb. 1951: Moore by 9th round ko

Bivins vs. Ezzard Charles
Jan. 1943: Bivins by unanimous decision
Nov. 1946: Charles by unanimous decision
March 1947: Charles by 4th round ko
Sept. 1948: Charles by unanimous decision
Nov. 1952: Charles by unanimous decision

I don't have a video of Bivins. :confused: Maybe some other member here does.

I had parts of the fourth fight with Charles and Bivins, but lost it after my computer got rebooted.

As for my fave rivalries:
Sugar Ray Robinson vs Jake LaMotta
Rocky Graziano vs Tony Zale
Joe Frazier vs Muhammad Ali
Arturo Gatti vs Micky Ward

A underated series are Robinson vs Fullmer, and I got all 4 fights. lol.

I think the first fight is the best, follow by the 2nd.
