    Best Boxing Match's ever

    After watching the Haye - Ruiz fight the other night, it made me want to watch a few more fights, so wondered what everyone thought the best ones ever were, or your top three. Thanks people!

    Id call myself a n00b when it comes to boxing but Calzaghes demolition of Jeff Lacy was good to watch. Simply a masterclass in boxing.

    Also, Hayes fight against Mormeck was bruuuutal =)

    Balboa vs Creed (2)
    or Knoxville Vs Butterbean

    Frazier v Ali (manilla), Benn V Eubank or Tyson Holyfield

    I was trained by the person that infllicted a defeat on Calzaghe before he turned pro

    without a doubt these are the ones you should watch

    1. sugar ray vs duran
    2. sugar ray vs hagler
    3. sugar ray vs hearns

    All time hall of fame is the rumble in the jungle.

    Lennox Lewis vs Michael Grant, 29 April 2000, New York City.
    Cost me a small fortune to see Lennox take less than two rounds to win.

    thriller in manilla is a better fight imho

    Look out for Arturo Gatti V Mickey Ward trilogy.

    Also for sheer drama, the Diego Carrales v Juis Loius Castillo 1 and 2 was a cracker!

    Ali - Foreman
    Ali - Frazier (71+75)
    Calzaghe - RJJ
    Calzaghe - Lacy
    Pacqiao - Barrera
    Gatti - Ward (first fight)
    Hagler - Hearns
    Tyson - Holyfield
    Sugar Ray - Duran (first fight)
    Lewis - Tyson

    These are the ones that regularly come up if you look for the ones people believe to be the best fights ever

    dunno how calzaghe got into that list.

    Ali - Foreman
    Tyson - Bruno
    Ali - Frazier 71
    Tyson - Holyfield 1st

    you can bet your balls on in that Pacman vs Mayweather will be the best when it happens

    Nigel Benn Vs The G Man, Gerald Mclellan

    Tragic end to a superb fight

    1) Castillo vs Corrales - Epic 10th round
    2) Gatti vs Ward - Epic 9th round
    3) Froch vs Taylor

    always love a good fight but one that stands in my memory was gatti vs mayweather.

    the castillo v carales was a good one aswell

    Naseem Hamed - Kevin Kelley...
    Froch - Taylor
    Froch Pascal...
    Corrales - Castillo... Both fights.

    Froch Taylor was nice but if you want to watch the fight of the year last year watch froch v pascal.

    Plenty of incredible and classic matches above. Gatti Ward were all solid.

    Not one of the best... But very entertaining.. Skip to 6mins. for the best bit..

    I can't take Paul Samuels seriously with that comedy hair style.

    ohh. I thought of more... lol Juan Manuel Marquez V Diaz

    and Marquez V Manny Pac... The first fight especially

    Marco Antonio Barrera V Erik Morales trilogy.
    Steve Collins V Chris Eubank/Nigel Benn.

    agree 100% with this list,

    Halger Hearns was amazing and is known now as the war!!

    Amazing fight.

    Tyson's fights, before he lost it, are all entertaining and accessible to a newbie of the sport.

    thought that fight was embarassing. Calzaghes showboating made me cringe, especially considering how shot jones was.

    Anyway...

    Hagler v hearns
    Gatti v Ward 1
    Morales v Barrera
    Pacman v Marquez

    oh and most recent diaz v marquez
    ]http//ww…etY

    Not a fantastic fight in terms of skill but for entertainment

    Prince Naseem against Kevin Kelly, funny funny fight, around 5 knockdowns and a ten minute ring entrance. haha

    couldnt agree more on your 1,2,3 although I think heavyweight boxing is so boring compared to middleweight.

    miguel cotto vs antonio margarito was an amazing fight :thumbsup:



    even when everyone thinks margarito cheated?

    ok sure he cheated, but it was an amazing fight to watch as a boxing fan hopefully cotto busts him up in a rematch and also manny too :whistling:

    by far the most amazing fight, tragic too, but thats boxing. The worst is, they set up the match hoping Benn would be the one destroyed, how wrong they got that.

    Also, The first tyson vs bruno fight has a soft spot with me. When big Frank rocked tyson, i was screaming for him to finish him but he dithered and backed off.
