Julio Cesar Chavez' sustained torturing of Edwin Rosario. At the time there were many who questioned whether Chavez (who was moving up from 130) could live with the hard hitting lightweight champ. Rosario had said he would send Chavez back to Mexico in a coffin and there was quite a bit of bad blood between the two.
Chavez destroyed with a brutal performance eventually winning by 11th round TKO. HBO Punchstat showed Rosario landing 263 of 731 punches thrown in the fight (36%) and Chavez 450 of 743 (61%).

Marco Antonio Barrera-Naseem Hamed. Outboxing the undefeated power punching sensation was his best performance.
Erik Morales-Paulie Ayala. In what would become the norm, Erik Morales was considered shot. Then he met the 122 pound champion and used sharp counter punching, along with some nice upper body movement to out box and out power Ayala.
Good ones. I thought of this one for Barrera too.

Alexander/Urango: His best performance yet for Alexander! Everything else after that stunk...
Vargas/Trinidad: Vargas weathered the storm in the first round, and made a fight out of it. Though Tito was the better fighter (skill-wise), Vargas made his mark and let everybody know that he was there to fight.
A. Peterson/Rios: This was Rios's breakout performance, and he had an answer for everything Peterson brought to the fight.
Agree with Alexander for sure. Agree with the Rios one too, he looked like a beast that night. Do not agree with the Vargas one though. Vargas did look good in spots, but he did get dropped a few times and knocked out brutally. Not his best performance. Hahaha. NOW I would say Vargas totally outboxing and dominating Ike Quartey was his best performance as a pro. Just my take.
