  1. I think the Diego Corrales vs jose luis castillo fight in 2005 was the best... but i havent seen them all.

    Here is the 10th round... best round i have ever seen.

  2. In terms of action, it was Ward-Gatti I and the 9th round was called the round of the century by Emmanuel Steward.

    But Castillo-Corrales I was almost as action-packed and the fight was contested at a higher level than Ward-Gatti (both Castillo and Corrales were pound for pound contenders), so my nod would go to Castillo-Corrales I as well.

    Here's round 9 from Ward-Gatti I:

  7. no doubt corrales won that fight because he spit out the mouthpiece gave him much more time to recover.

  8. Same thing came to mind. I ordered the Gatti/Ward Trilogy DVD online acouple of years ago and it is easily the greatest series of fights thatI have seen. It is almost impossibe in this day and age to see two prosstand toe to toe and just slug it out. You got De La Hoya andMayweather dancing around and they make $20 million, while these guysmake a fraction of that and fight like there's no tomorrow.

  9. Hagler and Sugar has always been my favorite. The war between finesse and anger, the sweet science and the brawler.

  12. in addition to the above mentioned fight. Rd. 10 was just as explosive. In their rematch round 3 was another great round showing the adversity of Micky ward this time. And their 3rd fight when gatti broke his right hand and continued the fight and throw the punch was pretty amazing. These 2 should go down as the greatest trilogy ever. Funny thing is...these weren't even title fights. Just pride

  13. I would say the best trilogy, just for pure action, was Zale-Graziano followed by Ward-Gatti. If you factor in the stakes for which the fights were fought and the historical significance of the fighters involved, I would then have to go with Ali-Frazier, Barrera-Morales and Holyfield-Bowe.
