Rocky wanted no part of Jake, atleast his management didn't! Jake was way to strong for him.
Foreman would be a Tyson nightmare, George would be stationary but he's NOT moving backwards! I know Cus would have passed on him in the first 2 years as a pro. Foreman was a dangerous opponent for anyone. Holmes was the ony one other than Ali that wanted him.
Spinks vs Evander at 175 would have been a great match up! Action figh and a chance at a 3 bout series.
I agree Norton vs Frazier could have been one hell of a fight!! Ray

Maybe this isn't on the scale as some of the others (maybe to me it is actually..huge fan) but I always wanted Tito and Shane to scrap it out.
Kind of random but also Valero Vs Pac. I dont care how it would have ended..I just know for maybe a round or two it'd have been greeat.

Totally agree on Pryor suggestions. Didn't Pryor try to get fights with all those guys? Like the Robinson-Maxim suggestion too. Bowe-Tyson I almost forgot about, was there a lot of talk about that one at some point? I remember a couple of mentions on TV at the time, but not much. I did really want to see Bowe take on Lewis though. Any reason why these fights didn't happen, especially Lewis-Bowe? I've heard it was because Lewis beat Bowe in the Olympics but also heard that Lewis priced himself out of the fight. So, which one is it or is it both? And what about Pryor vs. Duran or Leonard? Was Pryor considered too dangerous and just heavily avoided?
It ticks me off when fighters either avoid certain opponents or just when certain fighters are avoided by most contenders. I mean, these guys are FIGHTERS, they're supposed to fight the best and when they're at their best. Anything else just shouldn't be tolerated.
Also, I just remembered when watching Pernell Whitaker's career set, early on in his career, there was mention of a possible matchup with Whitaker and Camacho. Any reason why that one never happened?
