    I see....white belts.

    Vasquez vs. Marquez was good.

    Johnson vs. Dawson was also good, even if the scores were way screwed up.

    Campbell vs. Diaz deserves some consideration, too.

    izzy-raffy had all the aspects the fights mentioned had but more.

    it had the story
    it had knockdowns.
    controversy.
    and much more drama. that 12 round was something you don't see often.

    izzy-raffy 3 is the best so far.

    casa-kat is 2nd in my eyes.

    Hard to argue against any of these fights. Marquez-Vazquez III is tough to beat, though.

    massive understatement. it was tremendous action from start to finish. with the 12th to cap it off, best fight in years

    Marquez/Vasquez 3 I haven't seen it's entirety so I may say that but for now it's Pacquiao/Marquez 2. I thought that was a great fight.

    when one guy makes a spectacular 12th round comeback and wins a slugfest with a kd with 10 seconds to go, you know it's the best.

    nothing wrong with picking that fight. I think it's just that the display of skill was greater in the other fight. perhaps i'd think differently if Katsidis koed casamayor. It's too bad he swung so wildly before his demise, that was a huge comeback in the making.

    I'm with TS on this one. Katsidis-Casamayor was very good and had lots of drama.
