Hmm...interesting. Gotta give Ruddock a chance there simply because he hit so damn hard.

Yea, I was too young 2 see a "Live" Ruddock fight but from the fights I've seen he hit like a hammer, would be interesting to see how Holyfield would have done against him instead of Tyson fighting him a 2nd time.

Rematches don't count.

My pick is Foreman vs Holmes, so big that they got offers to make it happen after both of these men were 50 years old.
We can blame Big George for that. Larry started calling him out in early 1977 and is still calling him out to this day.

This isn't about pointing fingers...it's about making a list of fights we wished to see.
Sorry, Holmes-Coetzee very nearly happened in June, 1984. It was going to be the largest payday for a fighter to date. Holmes was going to get $30 million.

Shavers-Cooney would have been huge in 1980.

Leonard-Pryor would have been major around 1982 as well.

Leonard vs. Pryor would have been amazing! Mancini vs. Pryor nearly happened, but never did. I want to see if Livingstone Bramble would be able to outbox Aaron Pryor. He was a really good counter puncher. It is just too bad that Aaron Pryor had to get caught up in drugs.

Drugs are what saved him in the first Arguello fight.

Really? Didn't they give drug tests back then? Drugs messed him up though, and he quit a fight later on, saying that his eyes hurted lol.
The contents of the bottle have always been very controversial. With the cameras catching Panama Lewis saying "Give me the other bottle" and after drinking out of that Pryor had a huge new surge of energy.

Rocky Marciano vs. Ingemar Johanssen. Marciano was planning a comeback to fight him but then Patterson beat Johanssen and Marciano said **** it.

Rocky Marciano vs. Muhammad Ali. That fight also was probably going to happen, but then the bastard died.
