Default Awesome fights that could have happened, but didn't

First few that come to my head that have some solid significance:

Hopkins-Toney in the 90's
Mayweather-Hamed in the late 90's or early 00's
Foreman-Tyson late 80's

A few that might not have been that great sounding to some, but I've always found interesting:

Tua-Tyson in the early 00's
Mayorga-Margarito around 2004
Roy Jones Jr. vs. Michalczewski

In what way was Stevenson v Ali likely or "could have happened"?

I'm not sure if the two I've highlighted could ever have happened. By the times Hopkins was a relevant name at middleweight, Toney was basically fat and unable to make any sort of optimal weight and was already a cruiser by 97 lol

As for Hamed v Mayweather, it couldn't happen. Hamed was 5'4'' and at best an average sized featherweight whereas Mayweather at 5'8'' was a big super feather and by the time Mayweather got his name out there, with THAT marquee win over Corrales, Hamed was on his way out of the game.

Hamed v Marquez might be more realistically and Hopkins v Jones 2. Both fights didnt happen because someone didnt want it.

There was an article about it, they were actually at one point going to fight, but the Cuban government wouldn't let it happen.

Myung Woo Yuh - Jung-Koo Chang would've been ****ing incredible.

Michael Spinks - Saad Muhammad, it would've been late in Saad's career and Spinks would've won but it could have been a war.

I know I read about it but I mean it was never more than a pipe dream. It couldn't happen considering the legality of the issues surrounding it.
