Well it used to be Jim Jacobs in partnership with Bill Clayton to my knowledge.
But what happened to the collection after Jacobs death I wouldn't know, Jacobs always struck me as more the enthusiast out of the two.

I think ESPN Classics bought the collection. Unfortunately they never show the rare ones.

Cayton & Jacobs owned Big Fights Inc. Cayton sold the collection to Walt Disney Inc. who have ESPN Classics and show the old fights on a weekly basis, however they only show the very tip of the iceberg from their collection, showing mainly Ali and Tyson fights with the odd fight from the 50s once every 6 months

Hold on a second. That article says that ESPN have the Charles/Moore fights and 147 Robinson fights. I didn't think Charles vs Moore 1, 2 or 3 exsisted
