    Some really epic fights, love boxing, the best fight I have seen (probably with some contraversy because of what happened after ) was Nigel Benn v Gerald McKellen, epic fight, but probably my favourite fighter (didn't say best) would have to be Julio Ceasar Chavez snr, the man was as hard as nails.

    Edwin Rosario v. Jose Luis Ramirez, Part II. This is considered one of the greatest bouts of the 1980 era. I don't want to spoil the ending, but this short fight is a great case study in good refereeing.

    I wouldn't count the end of that as good refereeing!

    You got my joke! Wasn't that a funny scene? At least the referee was actually paying attention, had he not stopped the fight who knows what would have happened.

    Awesome, that is the third time "The War" has been posted. The first two posted videos no longer work, but yours does, so thanks!! It's hard for me to not watch that fight over and over, it's better than most of the boxing fights last year in my opinion.

    I hate to be a downer but there's no boxing in that fight. Good display of grappling though.

    :)

    IF you really want to see an amazing boxer in MMA, check out Frankie "The Answer" Edgar in his pro debut.

    A 90's fight of 140lb elites. Hard to watch the end, if you don't know what's coming, but try to hang through the whole fight. Suffice to say one of these guys hits a lot harder than the other, and it ends up sending the other guy to the ER after a great fight. That my friends is the reality of pugilistic art.

    I don't think I've posted this one before. This is a good matchup of veteran and noticebly tired heavyweights.
