Default Greatest boxing Trilogy of all time?

There are many famous boxing trilogies but which was the best ever?


I thought about Chad Dawson vs Glen Johnson but they only fought twice. If they make a rubber match they would probably be in the running.

Pacquiou vs Moralles
Gatti vs Ward
Bowe vs Holyfield
Ali vs Norton
Leonard vs Duran

Vazquez-Marquez is probably my personal favorite, even though it's a four fight series now. Many trilogies have fights that aren't as good as the other two, but Vazquez and Marquez had a better fight than the previous one every single time IMO, and Vazquez securing the victory in the third fight with a final round knockdown was perfect.

That is a very good choice. Certainly much better than the ones listed on that lame poll.

Didn't Diego Corrales fight a classic trilogy with someone too? He was considered a great warrior. That's usually the type of fighter I like to watch too. That's a career set I still have to aquire and watch. Right now I'm on Barerra and then onto Mosley. I'd say Gatti/Ward of the ones I've seen. Ali/Frazier is another great one, no doubt. It's what a fight is supposed to be. Both guys pushed each other to the limit, refused to quit and were willing to fight until the final bell or until someone dropped or stopped the fight, like Gatti and Ward. Barrera/Morales I liked a lot too. Pacquiao/Marquez I rank a little lower, as I don't consider the 3rd fight quite as exciting, same with Leonard/Duran. Holyfield/Bowe is another one I like. The 3rd fight is almost as good as the first 2 IMO.
