    I have a few personal....

    Lewis/Golota...At the time I though Golota would pan out to something....His fights with Bowe he seemed like a bad MOFO who just had to keep them up a little bit to avoid DQ....He was blown out like it was his pro debut and he was doing it against the champ

    Tszyu/Hatton...Thought it would be back and forth slugfest....Tszyu aged overnight....

    Tyson/Spinks...Who thought Michael would fold that quick

    Castillo v Corrales II and III
    And for Uncle Sam Rahman v Maskaev
    Hopkins v Taylor I and II is a good call. Complete stinkers.
    Remember the good old days, we miss you Marco!

    Barrera-Juarez II, although marco won it didn't have the intensity, drama and ebb and flow of their first fight.
    "Very few people really understand what it means to be a fighter. I hate it when I hear someone say, 'That fighter doesn't have guts. I hate that, I don't care if you're a world champion six times over or a four-round fighter, to step inside that ring, you have to have guts" Oscar De La Hoya

    Harrison v Williams for us Brits.

    Roy Jones v Toney (knock down/ Push, aside) was a bit of a snooze fest.

    Oh and Every other Emmanuel Augustus fight!

    Sam Soliman vs Winky Wright
    Arturo Gatti vs Leonard Dorin
    De La Hoya vs Trinidad
    Cintron vs Margarito

    De La Hoya vs Trinidad tops my list, the other fights are just disappointments in my opinion.

    Tyson - Lewis

    I really thought Tyson would give Lennox a run for his money. I remember reflecting back on Rachman's one punch destruction of Lewis and Oliver Mccalls tap dance , and Ray Mercer 12 round beat down of Lewis, Hell yeah Ray beat his country ass those fukin judges ! ! . I really thought Mike would have taking him out. very disappointed in that fight

    Yeah I was just a kid when that fight went down, like 14 I think, or 13, I don't remember exactly, but I always liked Tyson, least how he fought not his antics, and I thought he had a real shot of knocking out Lennox. He was talking hella tough, and afterall Rahman did it. But instead he took a hellacious ass kicking, but took it like a man, no quitting, least not that night.
    Also:
    Mayorga vs Delahoya
    Roy Jones vs Tarver II
    Roy Jones vs Glen Johnson
    "You knocked him down...now how bout you try knockin me down ?"

    Was sad to watch Tyson get beat like that, I almost cried. But it wasn't the same mike tyson that would have had a chance against Lennox Lewis. And sadly that fight could never have happened. When Tyson was at his best Lennox was still an amateur(I think). Which lets you know how past his prime Tyson was when that fight went down. It was sad.

    Most disappointing event would have to be...

    The Ouma Karmazin fight.

    How many people bought HBO Latino and then watched Ouma get the tar beat out of him

    Lamon Brewster vs. Andrew Golota.

    I was at the United Center in Chicago when this fight took place. The partisan Polish crowd had just seen Adamek get a decision against Briggs and was in a nationalistic frenzy. The crowd went wild when Golota entered the ring. 57 seconds and three punches later the building was silent. So silent that I was able to sneak onto the main floor and shake hands with Jim Lampley.

    Pac V Morales will be disappointing.
