They don't have to be completely obscure, but what are five of your favorite fights in your collection that wouldn't be ones that just about everybody would list right off the bat when they think of greatest fights of all time. For example, not Ali/Frazier III, Corrales/Castillo I, Gatti/Ward I, or Hagler/Hearns.

I can watch these fights every single day:

James Toney/Vassiliy Jirov 4-26-03
Acelino Freitas/Jorge Barrios 8-9-03
Jorge Arce/Hussein Hussein I 3-19-05
Julio Gonzalez/Julian Letterlough 2-2-01
Merqui Sosa/Charles Williams I 1-13-95

Dude, that's exactly why I made this thread. You need to check out ALL five of those fights I listed.

James Toney/Vassiliy Jirov - one of the best cruiserweight fights you will ever see; masterful counterpunching by Toney matched with effective aggression by Jirov; one of the best displays of infighting out there (originally broadcast on HBO in the US)

Acelino Freitas/Jorge Barrios - just an awesome fight with a lot of drama and a great atmosphere; I don't want to spoil it for you (originally broadcast on Showtime in the US)

Jorge Arce/Hussein Hussein I - all out war between two tiny guys; incredible chins, nonstop action, and one of the nastiest cuts you'll ever seen on a nose; on the undercard of Pacquiao/Morales I and came close to outdoing that fight (originally broadcast on HBO PPV in the US)

Julio Gonzalez/Julian Letterlough - awesome back and forth battle; trading knockdowns (originally broadcast on ESPN in the US)

Merqui Sosa/Charles Williams I - brutal fight, guns blazing, guts galore, and a very rare outcome (originally broadcast on ESPN in the US)
