So, what are everyone's favourite K.O's? Two that I never get tired of watching:

Miranda vs Banks

Lewis vs Rahman (payback )

And a rare moment of aggression from Fraudley.....

Harrison vs Sprott

I enjoyed watching Shane Mosley blow away that cheat Antonio Margarito after the loaded gloves scandal he had against Cotto, thought that was good punishment for him.

Yes that would in the same league, and like the Hagler v Hearns fight both men genuinely hated each other outside the ring.

Thanks to Ali.

Frazier always regarded Ali as a friend, even helping him out during his exodus from the ring, while Frazier was champion.

Ali's behaviour in the build up to the Frazier trilogy was pretty disgusting.

Sportscaster Barry Tompkins, doing the fight blow by blow broadcast for HBO's version of the fight, yelled out "This is still only the first round!" as the fighters traded heavy shots at round's end. This opening round is considered by The Ring as the greatest round in boxing history, and won round of the year honors for 1985.
Julio Cesar Chavez v. Pernell Whitaker 1993 (Sweet Pea was the champ, still agreed to fight Chavez in a boiler-room hometown crowd and still kicked the crap out of Chavez and yet the Texican crowd and judges in San Antonio gave the decision to Chavez...despite Chavez not touching Sweet Pea all night.) It's one of my favorites because it reminds me how ridiculously rigged boxing is and always pulls me back out of boxing before I ever let myself get sucked back in again.

That said, my favorite round ever is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KNuA...ailpage#t=402s because Tyson ruined so many fights with his myth that opponents just crumpled before he even touched him; Tyson was a cartoon character so it was like watching Hercules go down when someone finally stood up to his image and simply fought the man in front of him.

Completely agree. It will forever tarnish the memory of Ali for me; he will aways be my No1 boxer though, nonetheless.

I have a second suggestion for you

What do you think?

I loved it, and won a heap of cash, due to betting on Sugar Ray to win on points, two days after it was announced.
