Default What are some of the best full boxing cards in boxing history

Obviously boxing has had a bunch of great matchups & fights in its history. But what are some of the best full cards in boxing history.

And for full clarification I mean the main event is good to great, the co-main was good to great, the 3rd featured fight was good at least, the 4th billing fight was solid at least & so on down the line. And if we can get that far down the 8th or beyond fights had some good matchups or future good to great fighters or solid prospects of the day.

Fights coulda been garbage as played out. Not really talking about the entertainment value of the fights as the boxers fought them, just talking about the matchups going on & the appearance of excitement, hype or a competitive matchup going in.

And if you are a serious boxing history dork feel free to throw out the best cards, in your opinion, decade by decade.

And feel free to link or screenshot the boxrec event page.

I was at the first DeLaHoya - Mosley fight at Staples Center... Diego Corrales - Justin Juuko - Erik Morales and a couple more I can't recall. That was a pretty good card, with what turned out to be an an time classic main event.

Oh yeah. Christy Martin TKO'd Bethany Payne after she staggered her, I saw that on PPV. The Andrea Deshong TKO I watched years later, Martin got some nice exposure being on the undercard of both Holyfield/Tyson fights.

The other ones they aired were Michael Moorer getting a last round TKO over Francois Botha and Henry Akinwande with a 10th round TKO over Alexander Zolkin to retain the then minor WBO heavyweight title. Henry should've been able to outjab anybody with his very long reach, but Lennox Lewis was too strong for him once Henry tasted Lennox's power years later.

It must be tiring to have to sit through at least 9 to 11 other fights live before getting to a main event. Cool thing about an MMA card is you get to see the ones not televised online or on DVD and see every fight on the card. Boxing should start to do that if they want to bring in more casuals. Have an all boxing channel, maybe a website where you can watch the full card so we can see some of these future stars on the way up.
