Default The Fight Film Fesitval (Your Opinions)

It's obviously just an idea at this point, but I've always wanted to screen a week long Boxing Film Festival, showing great past fights, as part of an art exhibition celebrating the history of Boxing. I would show maybe 7 (or so) fights all day, for 7 days.

I would love to know your preferences and opinions. They don't necessarily have to go in chronological order, or by weight class. Just a good mixture of 7-10 fights a day, in a cinema, for an enthusiastic crowd. Either fights of great quality, or historical importance. Celebrating particular fighters, or merely a moment in time.

I know this is a lot to think about...but what would YOUR week look like? Or, what handful of fights would be absolutely NECESSARY for this very imaginary festival?

Here is my personal rough draft of just the first few days (not all "Great" fights, but would make an entertaining first few days as it evolves):

Day 1:

Vitali Klitschko vs. Lennox Lewis
Israel Vazquez vs Rafael Marquez -- Entire 4 Fight Saga!
Marvin Hagler vs. Roberto Duran
Roberto Duran vs Sugar Ray Leonard -- Trilogy
Gene Tunney vs Jack Dempsey

Day 2:

Prince Naseem Hamed vs Marco Antonio Barrera
Julio Cesar Chavez vs Meldrick Taylor
Julio Cesar Chavez vs Hector Camacho
Julio Cesar Chavez vs Pernell Whitaker
Oscar de la Hoya vs. Julio Cesar Chavez 1
Oscar de la Hoya vs Pernell Whitaker
Oscar de la Hoya vs Julio Cesar Chavez 2

Oscar de la Hoya vs Felix Trinidad
Erik Morales vs Marco Antonio Barrera 1 & 2

Day 3:

Mickey Ward vs Arturo Gatti - Trilogy
Sugar Ray Leonard vs Thomas Hearns 1
Sugar Ray Leonard vs Marvin Hagler
Sugar Ray Leonard vs Thomas Hearns 2
Hector Camacho vs Ray Mancini
Manny Pacquiao vs Erik Morales 1 & 2
