Review: 2001-05-05, valid for the WBO light heavyweight title, Dariusz Michalczewski vs Alejandro Lakatos was certainly one of the best boxing fights of 2001. Both boxers had never lost until that day, but Michalczewski had much more experience, being older than five years and especially because he had 43 professional fights while Lakatos only 15.

Review: 2000-01-29, Mike Tyson vs Julius Francis was certainly one of the best fights of 2000, as many fighting of Iron Mike.
