Good one. Just about every single loss he has had.

DLH-Mosley II
RJJ-Lebdev (I thought RJJ fought well for where he was at in his career and was in the fight)
Kessler-Calzaghe
Judah-Mayweather
Mayorga-Mosley

STEVENSKI
A couple spring to my mind

Duran vs Leonard 1. Leonard showed he was no cream puff but tough enough to mix it up with Duran.
Mickey Walker vs Tommy Laughran. A real smaller man matching it with one of the best 175lbers in history.

Marquez got a draw with Pac the in their first fight. Hopkins also drew with Pascal in their first fight. They did not lose. Just letting you know wizard.

Meldrick Taylor gave a great performance against Chavez in their first fight.

How was Ortiz impressive when he bitched out against Maidana? Nothing remotely impressive in that losing performance IMO.
gravytrain
Louis vs Schmeling I

a good example of a fighter going out on their shield.

Good point. I guess I named that one because of the see-saw action and the fact that Ortiz didn't know he was fighting a machine. Hell, I dont think anybody knew how much of a machine Maidana was until that night, smh.

The first one to come to mind is Mallinagi vs. Cotto...

I didn't even know who Pauly was before that fight now that I think of it..lls
