Dislike the word noughties (it just irks me).

Anyways in 20 years time someone new into the sport says to you I've seen all the iconic fights and have come to the 2000's (albeit not as strong an era as the preceding decades) and asks you to give them 5 fights they can watch that were between 2000-2010, which one's would you pick?

I'm old fashioned and boring - and still get excited by any boxing (for instance - I actually thought Bradley-Alexander was a good fight. If you read anything online you'll notice I'm in a minority of 1...)

However - Cotto-Margarito 1 - notwithstanding the doubt over Margarito's gloves - was a fantastic fight.

Pretty much sums up what I would put but i'd like to see one of the R. Marquez vs Vasquez fights in there, probably the most unappreciated trilogy albeit it did receive 2 FOTY awards.

Harrison vs Sprott was terrible with only a last minute upset saving it from total obscurity. If you are looking for a fight with UK involvement, I would be tempted to go for Froch vs Pascal. Cracking fight

The Froch/Pascal fight was the fight that turned me from a casual fan to an avid fan. I have ITV to thank for that thumbsup
