2 Arturo Gatti VS. Micky Ward

The best by BOTH fighters... Ward is the "Pride of Lowell" not Dicky Eklund. Sugar Ray slipped baby. So. Lowell in the house here!

Heart, determination & lump in the throat courage. The ninth round immortalised the pair of them.
RIP Arturo

Man vs Man, will vs courage, endurance vs agility, clearly the best fight of the boxing history.

Legendary. Mt. Rushmore of fights.

15 Sugar Ray Leonard VS Thomas Hearns I
16 Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan

Great fight from 1st minute, sad for McClellan but still hell of a fight - dazter

All of the rounds where classic

17 Joe Calzaghe vs. Mikkel Kessler
18 Oscar De La Hoya VS. Felix Trinidad
19 Larry Holmes VS. Gerry Cooney
20 Aaron Pryor VS. Nicaragua Alexis Arguello
21 Roberto Duran VS. Sugar Ray Leonard
22 Sugar Ray Leonard VS. Marvin Hagler

HAGLER WON EASY! Watch this fight on mute! Sugar Ray Leonard is one of the best but he just didn't win this fight.

23 Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao

A fight between the two greatest boxers of all time!

The Greatest fight I've ever seen.

24 Joe Frazier vs Jerry Quarry
25 Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Totally predictable outcome. Macgregor stood to lose $80 million if he went outside the rules. If it has been only $2 million, Macgregor might have said "the heck with it", and gone MMA. If he had, he would have destroyed Mayweather in seconds.

I vote for that to write "loool"

26 Johnny Tapia vs. Paulie Ayala
27 Larry Holmes vs Ken Norton
28 Dereck Chisora vs. Vitali Klitschko
29 Salvador Sanchez VS Azumah Nelson
30 Mike Tyson VS. Bruce Seldon
31 Floyd Mayweather vs Oscar De La Hoya
32 Matthew Saad Muhammad VS Yaqui Lopez
33 Riddick Bowe VS Evander Holyfield
34 Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Álvarez
