    Sometimes, you just wanna see a fight where two fighters beat the shit out of each other without much in the way of technique.

    Name some great slugfests.

    For me one of the greatest was Hagler vs. Hearns. Both fighters were in 'kill or be killed' mode that night. I think it was a big mistake for Hearns to fight like he did when he could have won by boxing more.

    Another one that I think was a great battle was McClellan vs. Benn. And we all know the sad outcome of how that one ended.

    And for a recent fight I think Klitschko vs. Joshua was an absolute HW war. Best performance we've seen from Wlad for many a year. Only one fighter was going to be left standing at the end of that.

    Certainly not one of the all-time great wars, but I just rewatched Maidana/Soto Karass the other day and that's a really fun fight (the atmosphere was quality, too).

    Hagar vs hearns and benn vs McLelan are the 2 that spring to my mind. 2 of my all time favourite fights

    High level or action slugfests Pryor vs arguello 1 has it all and between two top notch fighters Pryor combos were on some MK juggle action level

    Ron Lyle vs Earnie Shavers, Shavers dropped Lyle for the first time in his career but lyle wound up with the KO victory a couple of rounds later. Two brutal punchers
