Fights that made you greatly respect the losing boxer
Eubank fought his heart out in those fights and even though he lost them they have to be two of my fav Eubank fights. He showed tremendous heart and will in those fights
Arguello took a bad beating in those fights, never quit and fought to the end. Never made up any silly stories to explain away his loss like some other fighters have done

Cotto v Margarito.
I never really liked Cotto before hand and was rooting big time for Margs. I replayed the fight in the days following the event and each time I saw it my respect for Cotto went up.

Castillo vs Mayweather I and II. I had the first fight as a draw and I thought Mayweather only won the 2nd fight by 1 round

Sanchez-Nelson, wasn't alive at the time but I've seen it a billion times and Nelsons performance commands respect from everyone.

I thought Malignaggi was a punk before the Cotto fight but after he went on with a broken orbital bone in his face and never stopped trying i had to admit Paulie fought like a warrior. Abner Mares is another guy who i thought was a protected hype job but after watching him and Perez i gained a lot of respect for him.

The way Arugello was weeping after the Pryor loss was really difficult to watch. Considering he was my favourite fighter and he gave it his absolute all.
You could tell he felt as if he let everyone down becaue he couldn't beat an ATG in his natural weight class whilst he was in his 4th weight class.
He gave a warriors performance and his absolute all, he deserves so much respect for that loss.
