Great fights that never happened

I’ve been sat watching the sky sports sporting heroes with Lennox Lewis and it still bothers me that we never got to see him fight Riddick Bowe.

What others were there that we missed out on?

  • Hatton vs Witter

    I know this still stings junior and he will openly speak about it

    There was a time when I genuinely thought it could happen and it’s an unpopular view but I think junior would’ve beat him
  • Keane Vs Souness
  • Murray v Meire
  • Hatton vs Witter

    Decent shout that, I always thought it would happen eventually and was surprised it didn't. I was always a bit gutted that Herol Graham wasn't ever in with Eubank, Watson or Benn .
  • There's a few I can think of - Foreman v Shavers would have been interesting, as would Hatton v Cotto.

    Top of my list would be Morales v Marquez.

  • I think Ricky knew that Junior was a risk , (I was and still am a huge Ricky Hatton fan I am awe struck whenever I meet him ) but his version of Events doesn’t match juniors but juniors is more believable,

    Everyone knows boxing is smoke and mirrors with routes to titles managed accordingly and although Ricky was a deserved world champion and one of the most exciting and enthralling British boxer this one fight could’ve changed the path ,

    Morales vs Marquez my god that would’ve been an absolute war and blood bath
  • Hodges V Mainwaring.

    Good call. Herol Graham, or Roy Jones Jnr
  • Calzaghe vs Froch
    Mayweather vs Williams
    Eubank or Benn vs James Toney

    Still convinced the Khan/Brook fight will not happen despite them being with the same promotion company. Khan clearly does not want it

    Roy Jones v Benn would have been sensational.

    Bomber was a very good fighter but just shy of the others you mention.

    A few at 2 o'clock in Makro's car park on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Millwall v West Ham. So much f***ing talk before hand but nothing ever happens!!!
  • Alf Garnett in his local. Just dancing around the tables but no punches thrown
  • Roland v Peter
  • Probably couldn't have happened, but Azumah Nelson Vs Naz would have been tasty

    Cotto would've murdered him.

    Paul Williams v Mayweather.
    Calzaghe v someone with a pulse. Glen Johnson, Chad Dawson, prime Jones/Hopkins.
  • Paul Williams is one of the few who w0uld have had a chance against Mayweather

    Not so sure - not at 140lbs.

    It would have been close and perhaps Cotto - just.

    The same for Floyd against Manny.
  • Russia and Great Britain after The Dogger Bank incident.
  • Sergio Ramos v Mike Tyson in his prime, pampered tattooed shoulder barger Vs angry bulldog ear cannibal. Selfie stick footage of Ramos on the canvas.

    Cristiano Ronaldo v Chris Eubank, battle of the camp narcissists

    Roland Duchatalet v first come first served, the queue would stretch from his house to Bruges, and comprise of everyone who wanted to kick the shit out of him, family and 'friends', Jose Riga, the dentist for the yellow piano teeth, cobbler wanting paying for the sellotape repair of the Matalan shoes. Then a queue of Charlton firm in cardigans led by Prague, Henry Irving and Canters twatting him, cheered on by his wife, family and the village.

    Once we'd sold him to Sheffield Wednesday he pulled out, Garth Crooks didn't fancy it as he was too sloth like, Leaburn might've had a chance but luckily for us the long legs and poor coordination ruled him out
