What was your favorite Closet Classic?


 

How about you

 

?

Quite simply, when an exceptionally great fight is not widley televised or professionally taped and the details are thereafter passed on by word of mouth, the fight can gain closet classic and even cult status (or both such as the case of Lee Roy Murphy vs. Chisanda Mutti in 1985 in Monoco). Other favorites of mine were Danny Nardico vs. Charley Norkus (1954),  Hector Carrasquilla vs. Soo Hwan Hong (1977), Leland Hardy vs. Ike Padilla (1989) and Tommy Morrison-Joe Hipp (1992)

 

Foreman-Lyle, Castillo-Corrales, Moorer-Cooper, Somsak Sithchatchawal vs.Mahyar Monshipour and Durelle-Moore were pure classics in the true sense, but they were seen in plain sight. Closet classics stand the test of time; they are talked about decades after they happened. For example,  Aficionados continue to talk about Monroe Brooks vs. BruceCurry as if it happened yesterday.
