    When greatest rounds discussions come up we all go to Gatti/Ward 9, Hagler/Hearns 1, Castillo/Corrales 10, etc. But I was re watching a bunch of Hagler fights recently and totally forgot the absolute war he had with Mugabi in the 6th round. Both guys just stood throwing bombs for most of the round, it was incredible the amount of punishment Mugabi took and kept going.

    Impressive given how hard these guys hit. Mugabi was 25-0 with 25 KO's. Hagler was 62-2 with 52 KOs.

    This was a grossly underrated fight...

    another great fight/round was Ike Quartey vs DLH...
    I don't recall which round it was, but both were floored.

    Then we have literally every round of Salido vs Juanmalopez..

    That's the thing, I can remember high points but which round was it exactly? Shit, I'm an old man, I can't be expected to remember things like that.

    Anyway, Saad Muhamad vs Yaqui Lopez had many great rounds. (they fought twice)

    @Sunfish and I always recommend those fights in the "recommend fights" threads.

    You and me both brother...

    that's a fight and round that rarely gets discussed...

    and Ike Quartey had one of the best jabs of the last 50 years. Up there with Holmes.

    Not certain the round (the whole fight is good).... but I think it was round 9 Dunne vs Córdoba.

    Two fights immediately come to mind: Art Frias vs. Boom Boom Mancini (1st Round), and Michael Moorer vs. Bert Cooper (1st Round in which both guys were down).

    I know, there's a fight you've missed here but it's cool.

    What goes on in your bathroom, stays in your bathroom.

    Paquiao vs Morales 1 Rd 12

    Angulo vs Kirkland RD 1

    Mayweather vs Mosley Rd ??? Where Mosley caught May. Great offence and great defense from opposite sides.

    And of course, any RD 1 or Rd 12 from Lara.

    The Hagler-Mugabi fight is overlooked. Sandwiched between Hearns and Leonard will do that unfortunately.
