Ali v Foreman (1975) Report Abuse

Great fight... very important but NOT number 1 part of the greatness is how the fight was won but for all out action,excitement, and talent I'd go with Hagler/Hearns (1985). No disrespect to Ali v Foreman but the fight was a little boring but for such strategy, talent, events leading up and the fact it was an upset it has to be in your top 10

Ali and Foreman are two of the greatest names in boxing, and this is one of the most iconic matches in history. A great watch for anyone that can appreciate an important event in cultural history.

Joe Frazier beat Ali in 1971, the title is wrong

Yes, it was the fight of the century. But Ali won it, when Frazier's corner through in the towel, with Frazier unable to see, after taking a beating in a spectacular 14th round. Ali immediately collapsed after he won, and he himself had said he wanted to stop the fight after the 14th.

Billed as "The Fight of the Century," this match delivered on the hype. Frazier wins a grueling battle with Ali, dealing the latter his first professional loss.

pacquiao vs cotto Report Abuse
In this fight, Manny Pacquiao add another notch to the boxing history. His impressive list of conquered opponents earns the fighter a tremendous amount of consideration as one of boxing's great fighters. It is a fight he should win and you would think that victory would set up the biggest fight the sport will have seen since Mohammad Ali was in his prime.
