    Just watched this again, going through some super bouts.

    Is this the best boxing match ever? I simply defy anyone to find a better round of boxing than the first round of that fight.

    If anyone hasnt seen it, its 9 minutes of your life you will not waste!

    Agree entirely.

    3 rounds of savagery. Hagler and Hearns hated one another and it shows.

    Big fan of them both, more so Hagler. He was truly awesome.

    I full support this. Gatti has always been my absolute favourite boxer, no one else shows such strong will and determination to continue in a tight situation. I love all his fights.

    Gatti v. Robinson is also a fantastic fight.

    However if we are talking about individual rounds I like the first round of Barrera v. Morales I for one of the most vicious.

    Hagler v Hearns for me as an amazing round of boxing.

    However for a full fight of toe to toe kickassness then i would highly recommend David Tua v Ike Ibeabuchi.

    I remember watching this on VHS when i was a youngster (think it would have been '96 or '97.

    Just watched that fight zootfloot, a truly amazing match, the most punches thrown in a Heavyweight fight ever, a record that still stands I believe. Incredible athletes.
