4_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2001-04-07, Marco Antonio Barrera vs Naseem Hamed was probably the most anticipated fight of 2001, two great boxing champions, both very spectacular. Barrera had a record of 52 wins and 3 losses (two with Junior Jones and one against Erik Morales, bout named fight of the year of 2000) while Prince Naseem Hamed still had a perfect record: 35 fights with no defeats. The two boxers hated each others in fact during the fight there are some improprieties, but it was one of the most exciting fights of 2001. Watch the video!

4_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2001-05-12, Felix Trinidad vs William Joppy has certainly been one of the best boxing fights of 2001.

5_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2001-03-24, Oscar De La Hoya vs Arturo Gatti, for us, was the fight of the year of 2001. De La Hoya, nine months before, had lost against Shane Mosley and absolutely needed a win to move closer to a world title, Gatti, instead, did not suffer any loss in the two previous years. Oscar De La Hoya and Arturo Gatti were two boxers very technical and spectacular that could not give us an exciting fight. Watch the video!

4_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2000-01-29, Mike Tyson vs Julius Francis was certainly one of the best fights of 2000, as many fighting of Iron Mike. In January 2000, when he faced Julius Francis (21-7-0), Mike Tyson (46-3-0) had already lost against James Buster Douglas and twice with Evander Holyfield, but at 33 years old he seemed still have the desire and the anger of the past.
