    That was the first to cross my mind, but I settled on Greb vs Mickey Walker.

    Ali Foreman. Ali Frazier One was the biggest heavyweight event of that era but Ali beating Foreman in an exotic location edges it for me.

    Any fight that took place in Germany in the mid 1930s, so I could kill that Hitler character. Early 80s would be good too, Id invest in Microsoft.

    In that case Tyson v Douglas to lay that 40-1 bet.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Another great one left only to benefit fans through reporter and historian accounts of the time. It's a shame really, what we take for granted as far as fight availability. We're spoiled . I read a few years ago there was known to be a reel set of this one. Have to imagine someone somewhere was sitting on random footage of Greb in action, though anything now has to be of quality so badly degraded it's unrecognizable. If it hasn't dissolved completely. By all accounts Greb v Walker was an all time classic.

    I also may choose Sullivan vs Corbett. I’m wondering how bad that fight looked compared to now

    Keep in mind then youd have to live around the turn of the 20th century. Dentistry was real bad in those days, and the women werent nearly as attractive.

    Sam McVey v Joe Jeannette - Paris 1909

    49 round war and regarded as the best and most brutal fight in history.
    They used balloons filled with oxygen to revive the fighters between rounds after dragging them back to their stools.
