Mike Tyson vs Buster Douglas, Feb. 11, 1990.
@handicappers vs @PhoenixEagles1 is probably my favorite.
Best fight? Or best boxing match?
One of the toughest fights I have ever seen was Forest Griffin vs Stefan Bonner.
Best Cruiserweight fight of all-time
Great inclusions thus far. Knowledgeable people in here.
Gatti/Ward has part of my vote. Those 3 fights were just crazy, and Gatti is one of my favorite boxers of all-time (RIP). Dude threw bombs full time and stood there and took it.
The Holyfield/Qawi fight was a great mention. Kudos. Evander was a warrior and was in a lot of great fights. He wanted to go toe to toe with anybody and simply outlast you. Evander/Bowe was some great stuff.
Sugar/Hagler was crazy good. Hagler won that fight by the way.
Hagler/Hearns may have been better. Best 3 round fight in the history of boxing.
However, the other great fighter that maybe I admire the most is Bernard Hopkins. He did it the hard way going against the 'in guys' and promoters; and simply beat everybody. His fight against Felix Trinidad in 2001 was probably the greatest boxing performance I've ever seen. He took the will and power out of a dude that was 40-0 and a guy who had whipped some of the biggest names in boxing. He made him quit and absolutely ended his career.
