    I would think that you would have to define "famous" and that boxing would have to be divided into temporal periods given the differences in communication etc. throughout the history of the sport.

    However, Louis - Schmelling II and Ali - Foreman are the first two that came to my mind when I read the topic.

    My pick would be the famous , Calzaghe vs Manfredo , an unbeaten champion pitted against the very best challenger out there , toe to toe action , evenly matched it had the lot.

    I suppose once again it's down to personal opinion, the few that spring to mind are the 'Rumble in the Jungle', 'Thrilla In Manilla' of course the louis Max from years back, but the one i will always remember for the one that had it all was Hagler V Hearns. Ok it didnt last as long as some previously mentioned but for pure excitement and thrills that would get my vote

    Surely it has to be the Rumble in the jungle, even my mum has heard of that whereas her answer to Louis-Schmeling would be "Who?".

    Ali vs. those other guys.

    While most of you can make good arguements for most famous or moreso better fights and likely be correct in the better dept, the overall population on the planet knows "Ali was the greatest" and fought them other guys. What were their names again?

    The Rumble in the Jungle, no question. That fight transcended the sport.

    Some people say boxing is a matter of life or death, it's not, it's far more important than that.

    I'm guessing most famous, meaning most well known all around to the general public and boxing fans?

    Ali-Frazier 1,3 or Tyson-Holyfield 2.
