Garcia vs Khan - Garcias coming out party
Pac vs Marquez I - Both men came to fight, 3 KDs in first round from Pac, and an amazing rally from Marquez, it defined what about men were about.
Naz vs Kevin Kelley - Exciting fight, an era were men came to fight
Tyson vs Berbick - To me this fight looks like David and Goliath
Hopkins vs Pascal II - Oldest man in history
Khan vs Maidana - Proved Khan could hang in there with the best of them, Proved Maidana had a lot of balls

Personally I don't look at any of those as "Signature" fights because none of them define the very best performance of either fighter. A "Signature Fight" is one that defines the very best performance a boxer/fighter has put on (A Clinic, if you will).

Hopkins had another Signature Performance vs Kelly Pavlik, some believed it was better than his bout vs Tito.

Winky had his signature bout vs Tito as well. Jones put on a clinic vs Pazienza and Toney.

Hopkins dismantling Pavlik immediately springs to mind. The media and most fans thought it would be the burial of Bernard but he proved them all wrong once again... and he did it in dominating fashion. I had picked Hopkins all along to win but I never thought it would be in the manner in which it went down

I guess you could do Martinez Pavlic as well, ever since that fight Martinez hasn't slowed down. Hope Pavlic doesn't read this, it definitely won't bring his morale up.

1. Buster Douglas KO of Mike Tyson. Great display of his boxing skill. He was never that great before. He would never again be that great.

2. Shane Mosley vs DLH 1.

3. Winky Wright vs Trinidad. Winky put on a clinic.

4. Hopkins/Trinidad. Hopkins put on a clinic.

5. James Toney vs Michael Nunn. How one punch can change a fight...

6. Toney vs Jirov. Classic fight and classic performance from both guys.

7. Tyson/Spinks. Everybody knows Tyson from this fight. Everybody can tell you how long it lasted... 91 seconds...

8. Louis/Schmelling 2 did much to lift the nation as well as black people's spirits.

9. Ali/Liston both fights. Made Ali a star.

10. Hagler/Hearns. The greatest fight I've ever seen. Haglers signature performance bar none. The sight of his own blood pissed him off. It was all down hill from there for Hearns. *** On a side note, I actually had nightmares that Marvin Hagler was gonna kill me and my parents in our sleep back then.

Fair enough, tbh it's probably more of a list when I really took interest in some fighters
