    Default If you could be at any boxing event in history, which fight would you select?

    For me, it would be Louis vs Schmeling rematch given the global social implications involved.

    What say you?

    Ali v Frazier 1 because it was an event. 2 great undefeated heavyweight champions fighting one another and the world watching.

    My second would be Ali v Foreman in Zaire.

    I always thought Dempsey vs Tunney would have been cool. Either one. The problem is that if you weren’t up front, you wouldn’t have been able to see anything.

    The Thrilla in Manilla is a good candidate for me.

    Hagler-Hearns for me. Second place is Ali-Frazier 1. Third place is Holyfield-Tyson 1. Fourth place is Hopkins-Trinidad. Fifth place is Sweet Pea-JCC.

    Maybe Harry Greb w.15 Gene Tunney at Madison Square garden. Hey no one has ever seen him fight, might as well see him lay a purported beating on the future hvy weight champ.

    Hagler-Hearns would be a good one for me also. Only problem is it was over too quickly. Ali-Frazier I, of course. The Thrilla I would've liked just a tad more, though.

    After that, I'd say Duran-Leonard I, Leonard-Hearns I..... and since you mentioned Tito I'll go the other way and say I would've killed to be in Trinidad-Vargas.

    The famous quote - in your sig - is from the late promoter Mickey Duff.

    For me ringside at Hamed v Marco Barrera, to watch Hamed's in the ring pre fight bullshit about islam and then watch him get twatted would have been great.

    Yes that's the bout I would have liked to be ringside the most.
    Great performance from the underdog beating an unbeaten champion.

    Ali v Liston would be my 3rd choice.

    Would not mind being there when Jack Johnson beat up Jeffries provided i would not get killed.
