My top one is probably Marquez-Morales. Hopkins-Toney would have been great several years ago as well. Hopkins-Froch would be fun, and I'd enjoy the build-up to Garcia-Guerrero. The other one would be Donaire-John.

Rose is just reminds me of Baron Davis career, almost to a T. They seriously are almost identical players (minus the jumpshot and godly handles baron had) and their careers look to be heading the same way. Too much torque for those little bodies..

But good list chi! I had to shake my head at juanma vs gamboa Lmao, I can still here arum during that interview saying "let it marinate"... It marinated alright! Both guys careers went to shit after that.

Mayweather-Bradley

Col Reb said the ones I wanted to see but I'll add Rios vs Ortiz to that. Wanted to see that when they were trained by the opposing brothers. Woulda been a great 24/7 to see.

I hated to see that happen to Derrick. It was just a freak accident but the surgery he had insures he won't shave time off his career and he made the decision to sit out the remainder of the season. Now with that said he won't be back to the player I and other fans love for a while. At least that's my opinion, I think he won't play the way hes accustomed to for about a season and a half. The problem now is there's rumors of tanking and/or blowing the team up. And also rebuilding the team and having Derrick be the side kick. It just sucks. Baron was a bad dude but he had some major issues with his knees and he had the opposite surgery of what Derrick had, and look what happened. So did D Wade and CP3

I wanted to see that fight when both were hot and undefeated. It would've been something special to see those 2 go at it and Arum diced it up by letting it marinate and putting Salido in with Juanma. Wouldn't be the first or last time Arum blew a good fight for us lol....and it doesn't appear Gamboa is with 50 anymore. He's fighting next month on a small card in Florida with a small time promoter. Juanma was ruined in the ring and Gamboa just ruined himself with his bull crap outside of it

That's cold, but it's the troof. Dude and "strike anywhere" matches that he calls legs, are failing him. Not a good sign...

I've always wanted to know how a Mosley/Trinidad fight would've played out...but this guy named Winky Wright got in the way of that.

I know it is but I'm trying to make light of it lol. I feel for him because he works hard and he did so to get back. It was just a freak injury. Not as bad as an acl but it's just bad for him and the team

How the hell did I miss this one? Their styles would've made for a great fight. I don't know who I'd have favored in that one
kej718
Roy Jones vs. Mike Tyson (right after he beat Ruiz they were talking about this fight)
Floyd Mayweather vs. (Nasim Hameed (just for the ring entrances laugh.gif ), or Acelino Frietas @ jr. lightweight when they were both undefeated)
Oscar De La Hoya vs. Miguel Cotto
Joe Calzaghe vs. Carl Froche

I am going to pick 5 fights I would like to see right NOW in boxing (not counting Mayweather-Pac). I won't use any fighter more than once and I will ONLY make reasonable picks. I won't have GGG vs Mayweather on this list.

1. Manny Pac vs Tim Bradley
-These 2 need a rematch. Almost everyone felt Pac won the first one but the 2 judges obviously gave it to Tim. We need closure here. It would also be a big fight overall because most people have Bradley in the Top-5 P4P rankings. If Manny can beat him, really for a 2nd time, it would be big for his career/legacy. If Bradley can beat Manny legitimately, it would be HUGE for his career/legacy.

2. Sergio Martinez vs GGG
-Great test for both fighters. Everyone wants to see what GGG would do against a slick boxer with great hand speed. Well, Martinez is that type of fighter.

3. Lucas Matthysse vs Ruslan Provodnikov
-Why not? Bombs away in this fight. Can Ruslan's chin hold up against Lucas' offensive assault? I wanted to put one really action fight on my list. I can't imagine this fight going the distance.

4. Juan Manuel Marquez vs Danny Garcia
-This would be a really interesting boxing match.

5. Floyd Mayweather vs Adrien Broner
-You have to put Floyd on this list. Truth be told I had a tough time getting excited about any Floyd fight that's out there right now. I think he crushes Garcia/Bradley. I want to see Floyd in there with a fighter with really fast hands. Since I can't pick Pac, I will go with Broner. I still think Mayweather chops Broner up, but I think Broner would be Floyd's toughest fighter in anything 154 and under*

*not named Pacquiao

I would love to see Rios vs Ruslan. Also Broner vs Bradley

The original PAC VS MAYWEATHER fight was the potential showdown between Paul Williams and Floyd Mayweather. A lot of people forget that at the time Paul was hot and nobody was trying to mess with ole boy. The only legit duck I can personally call on Floyd was that fight..and honestly I can't say I blame him.

Just had a discussion like this where I had to pick one brawler current and one retired brawler..my combo...

Duran vs Provodnikov would've been a war of the worlds!!!!! at 147

Poor Rose...dude just cant catch a break. no2.gif

I'm not sure who would've won that one, because they're both decent boxers, but they always look to knock a guy out. I think that patience and a strict game plan probably would've gave Tito the edge. I cant truly remember when this fight was supposed to happen, so I can't speak of which Shane Mosley would've shown up. I can imagine that it was around that '02, '03, or '04 period of time, so I think Shane was still quick at the draw.

Anybody wonder why that Paul Williams/Kelly Pavlik fight never popped off? I remember some mysterious injuries struck Pavlik, but if I remember correctly, the talks of this fight, came a little while after the Hopkins loss, and when birdies were speaking of Kelly hitting the bottle. I'm not sure though.

It would've been a great scrap for what it's worth. I mean, Paul wasn't the biggest puncher at 160, and Pavlik wasn't all that focused, so maybe those shortcoming's would've made for an even exchange of action. Again, who knows...

Broner vs Mayweather

Paul Williams vs Canelo

Doubt it, Duran would of fucked him up, plain and simple.

As mentioned by thread starter; Hopkins vs Toney. I think BHop would've gotten to the flat-footed JT and won by UD but it would've been a great fight. I would've also have like to seen Marquez vs Morales.
