Trinidad vs Vargas. He didn't need to fight him that soon. Poor guy was never the same.



I agree. And the low blows sure didnt help either

Ali losing to Holmes was sad. Holmes losing to Tyson was sad. Even though I never liked Holyfield and I used to be a big James toney fan, watching toney beat up Holyfield was kinda sad too. Tyson losing to that big white guy (can't even remember his name) was sad... especially the post fight interview where he admitted he didn't even want to fight and he was doing it to get himself out of debt. I think the saddest fight I've ever watched most recently was when Gatti got beat by Gomez. Arturo was never the most skilled fighter but he had the heart to keep him in most fights. Gomez wasn't even that skilled and he completely embarassed Gatti. Beat him bad and Gatti just looked helpless.

Mike Alvarado v. Bredis Prescott . Both guys fought their hearts out and it didn't matter who came out the victor, each guy deserved it.

Man there's so many that i can name but for 1 that stands out to me, no matter how much time i watch it is Roy Jones vs. Antonio Tarver 2... I don't know whats worst actually seeing 1 of the greatest being knocked out or hearing the joy in larry merchant's quote by saying "Roy is out, and Roy may be out of boxing"... Truth hurts (smh) and in case your wondering, yup just got done watching that fight.

+1. Since I watched it live, I NEVER have watched it again. To be honest, short of someone putting a gun to my family's or my head, I can't think of a scenario that will make me view it again.

I find it hard, for the ONLY reason I look at Cotto "sideways". Zab had Cotto on "roller skates" a bit and Miguel resorted to the "Tito tactic". While I give Cotto (some) credit for winning that fight, I know that he opted to use a cheap tactic to control Zab. Anyone who knows the how quickly the game changes, should your nuts get clanged like wind chimes....and make no mistake about it: those shots found their intended destination

Yeah we can never rule out the low blows. Honestly, low blows weren't Judah's primary issue that night. Karma was is the building with a purpose, and that purpose was served.

The same way Cotto went low when he got in trouble (as Tito used to do (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ), Zab did the same thing to Floyd in his prior bout when he was getting his jenga blocks pulled.
