If one considers what was on the line, the sheer brutality, and the emotions involved....got to go with Ali-Frazier III, from the list provided.

I might go with Chacon/Limon IV as the best fight I've ever seen.

Are we talking the 'best' fight or the 'greatest' fight??

If we're talking 'best' fight then Hagler/Hearns and Castillo/Corrales are up there, as are Dempsey/Firpo, Louis/Conn, Foreman/Lyle, Holmes/Norton, Zale/Graziano, Eubank/Watson II and Benn/McClellan.

Its just a pointless slugfest between two bums. Castillo/Corrales 1 gets my vote.

ward and gatti are far from bums, and achieve more in one day then you'll ever achieve in your entire life.

I wish I'd seen that one...or any of the four. Everything I've read about the Chacon-Limon rivalry echoes of the modern classic trilogy of Gatti-Ward...maybe more.

Even though it wouldn't warrant as a classic, Davis-Breland was a great fight in my book from a guts stand point. Also, Brown-Trice I, Trice-Pompey...I can think of a few others.

Most exciting fight I've ever seen was Benn/Logan, especially considering I was there.

i dont know why i put dempsey firpo up their. some fights are good but dont last long enough to be considered greatest fights ever, like dempsey firpo and hagler vs. hearns.

Thats like saying I should be a fan of every person that can do something I can't. As a boxing fan, I see Gatti and Ward as bums, I think I'm entitled to that opinion without having someone like you bust my balls.

If you want thrills, you can't go wrong with Bobby Chacon. Chacon is one of the most exciting fighters of all-time, if not the most. Props to Yogi for mentioning Chacon-Limon IV.

Others that are worth mentioning:

Chacon - Boza Edwards II
Saad Muhammad - Lopez II...Pretty much any Chacon/Saad Muhammad fight.
Barrera - Morales I

oh please ali frazier III was 5 times better. the last few rounds of the first fight was a bunch of clinches and grabbing.

Nah. Both men had better handspeed, and Ali was on his toes more in the first fight.

Ali was not on his toes more in the first fight. He fought flat-footed most of the fight.

The "greatest" fight ever goes to Ali-Frazier I in my mind. Two undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champions going head to head. The hype was enormous, and the fight was absolutely brilliant. Lots of action, fairly close, lots of skill.

The "best" fight in terms of action, I always say either Gatti-Ward I, or Barrera-Morales I. Both are amazing fights, all four guys have massive hearts. Runners-up include Ali-Frazier III, Bowe-Holyfield I.
