    Terry Norris was lined up to fight Oscar De La Hoya (who fought on the same bill) when he lost his title to Keith Mullings.

    Great one. Being knocked spark out by Neville Browne in sparring convinced Collins to call it a day.

    People forget that Lewis vs Bowe was signed and sealed for the next fight when Lewis ran into McCall.

    Same for a WBC/ WBO unification between Lewis and Morrison when Michael Bentt crashed the party. Of course it happened later as a non-title fight.

    I believe that Sugar Ray and Archie Moore came close to agreeing a deal in around '59 but never quite came together. Would have been quite the spectacle.

    Norris was already on the Jones-like slide by that time.

    The cancelled light middle unification with Vasquez in Newcastle (the Hamed - Alicea show) - now that would've been a great evenly matched fight.

    Scott Harrison v Joan Guzman - maybe not a "classic" but it was a big fight at the time.

    Ah it was Ward and Dirrell wasnt it. Didnt they claim they didnt want to fight cause they were friends or some bullshit.

    So who was Kesslers last fight meant to be - originally Taylor then Green?
