I think Ali vs. Tyson would be the biggest fantasy fight of all time.

Ali vs Louis would be big too.

Yup, I'd pay a fortune to see that fight.

I think Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Oscar De La Hoya at welterweight would do like 8 or 9 million PPVs, no joke.

Ali-Tyson would be the biggest, or Robinson-Leonard.

.
Leonard/Mayweather would be even bigger.

If Roy hadn't gone down and taken the Tarver fight, Roy Jones vs Mike Tyson, which there were plans for, would have broken records.

Ofcourse it would have essentially unfolded like the Tyson/Spinks fight

DLH vs Leonard would be big on the ppv scale.


Hopkins vs Hagler IMO as well
