1. pavlik had the flu and came up to 170.

2. tito was shot against winky.

3. pazienza was several weight classes and several years past his prime.

4. toney had the flu against roy....and really, roy didn't do much in that fight.


1. Garbage, he made no excuses and even if he was healthy he still would've have lost because he did not have the skills to deal with BHop.
2. BS, that was only the 2nd fight Tito lost, he just didn't have the skills to deal with Winky no more than he did vs BHop.
3. True enough but even if he had been at his prime and in the appropriate weight class he still would've gotten dominated.
4. Toney did not have the flu, he was drained from all the weight fluctuationing and having to lose a vast amount of weight in such a short time.

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.


Yep, seems like fighters turn in memorable moments when he's across the ring from them

I'd say Ward/Dawson/Froch/Kessler AND Bika. Ward has a string of em under his belt now. Thats a helluva freaking resume. He's the f'n new man...

Bowe/Holyfield - Riddick at his best. Too bad he never showed the same effort again...

Cotto/Mosley - To me that was MC's coming out party...

Good list Mit!

Those Bowe/Holyfield wars were CRAZY! Bowe was just too much for Evander, but he still fought like a champ all the way through.

I'm warming up more and more to Cotto/Mosley nowadays. That's when I discovered just how quick Cotto's hands were in that fight...well, how quick they were against a quick fighter. Cotto was punching WITH Shane, which was a surprise to me at the time. Nonetheless, a great bout!

1. of course he didn't make excuses. he's not that type of fighter....but it was reported. i'm not making it up. and at 170....the weight hopkins started his career at...and a weight that pavlik never fought at...i can't help but think bhop had the advantage. had that fight been at 160...who knows? for the record, i called this bout. bhop didn't do anything i didn't expect him to do when i considered everything. not exactly a signature performance.

2. it was only his 2nd fight after a 2 yr layoff. he was as flat as an iron. anyone that has ever followed his career could see that. sure, winky looked spectacular, but that wasn't the trinidad of old. he never looked the same after the bhop loss.

3. if pazienza was in his prime...in his prime weight class...he'd still be too small for roy. only a fool would think what he did to pazienza was impressive. it's like a grown man beating up a child. not impressive.

4. again...don't kill the messenger. toney had the flu going into that fight. it was reported. roy didn't do anything spectacular in that fight.

cotto mosley is one of my all time favorites, there were some bombs traded on that fight. And your completely correct, what surprised me most was cottos timing. Great fight
