Fight recommendations that could've went either way

What are some under the radar fights that were competitive that could've went either way? I'm mostly looking for 90's and 00's fights.

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

Hey, seems no one responded lol so this is a little late but here's are some good fights that could have gone either way or a draw (90's to 2000's):

Marquez vs Pacquiao 1
De la hoya vs whitaker
Iran Barkley vs Duran

De la hoya vs Mosley

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

Really any of the first 3 Pacquiao Vs Marquez fights. I would also say the second Bowe Vs. Holyfield fight

It's a bit after the time you're looking for but the first Ward-Kovalev fight is also a good example.

For one a bit earlier, I would say Holmes Vs. Spinks 2.

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

I think I've seen all of them that were recommended.

Tapia - Ayala II...hell, even the first fight was razor thin...great fights

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

yeah I had that one a draw

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

De La Hoya vs Quartey for sure.

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

Kevin Kelley vs Adams, Taylor vs Cory Spinks, Lamon Brewster vs Kali Meehan, Judah vs Rafael Pineda, Ricardo Torres vs Mike Arnoutis, Angel Manfredy vs Julio Diaz, Castillo Vs Casamayor, Eubank Sr Vs Rocchigianni, Cristain Mijares vs Viking Terrazas,

Castillo vs Stevie Johsnton both close but clear outcomes imo but real competitive so was Johnston vs Cesar Bezan 1, Shane Mosley knock out of RIvera was competitive as long as it lasted imo, so was Barrera vs Fast Eddie Jones earlier in Barrera's career

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

Quiroga vs Anifowoshe (must watch if you haven’t already)
Robinson vs Gatti I
Toney vs McCallum I & II
Vargas vs Wright
Eubank vs Watson I
Jung Koo Chang vs Hilario Zapata I 80’s (I feel Chang won comfortably)
Chang vs Sot Chitalada II
Marcos Villasana vs Esparagozza 80’s
Azumah Nelson vs Jesse James Leija I
Tim Witherspoon vs Carl Williams
I am sure there are tons but just thought of some of these?

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

good list man, great shout with Vargas Wright
can you actually see Gatti winning the first Robinson fight tho or Toney the second McCallum fight?...I remember thinking "what a gift for Toney" in that second fight

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

No I can’t see the case for Gatti but it was an SD or MD by memory? And I have heard a few (very few) who scored a draw. But I have a philly bias so I may be influenced even when I try not to.

It has been a while since McCallum/Toney for me. I feel Toney won 3 handily and 1-2 were pretty close either way? But that is memory and not a recent viewing.

Re: Fight recommendations that could've went either way

You can't go wrong with Hagler vs Leonard. One of my favorites because of the contrast of styles.
Pacquiao vs Marquez 1 works too.
