I think Povetkin Vs. Whyte is not a super important victory but instead a satisfying one, a smaller and older white guy pulls an upset against a larger and younger nonwhite, (a lot of smaller and older white guys fighting bigger and younger nonwhites it seems, pull out the victory a lot of the time nonetheless).

So much for that black pound-for-pound superiority.

Others such as some of Loma's or Pavlik's etc. wins can be included here as well, Teofimo is backing away from the rematch. :lol:

I agree with the Calzaghe vs Hopkins as number 1! Who do you ask? Because he beat one of the greatest boxers of the last few decades and embarassed him
while doing it. He dominated the fight and clowned him with his own moves. Calzaghe also retired as an undefeated champion similar to Rocky Marciano
even though it's not the heavyweights it's still legendary!

I’m a casual boxing fan, so take my opinion with that in mind, but I’d have to agree. I remember before the fight Hopkins talking a ton of trash saying he “would never lose to a white boy” or something to that extent. Well he not only lost but he got dominated and embarrassed. Calzaghe really made him look like a fool.

This fight was also instrumental as it opened the flood gate to other White men beating the old, bitter racist as well. Joe Smith beating him was also really cool as he was a total unknown at the time. On a personal note, I was really pulling for him as he grew up in the same area as my wife and her family. A tough guy from a really working class area.

It was especially satisfying and entertaining when Smith knocked Hopkins out of the ring. A great way for that chump to exit the sport!

I think that win will look better with age. If you exclude Americans, Whyte could potentially be the greatest pro heavyweight ever from the Americas. He's quickly building an impressive resume:
Povetkin
Parker
Chisora x2
Rivas
Helenius

The Gypsy King's showing in his Trilogy with Wilder is definitely at the tippity top!

Going back to mid 2000s, I used to be thrilled watching Pavlik and Calzaghe highlights when I was in High School!

This victory for the Gypsy King is tops for me as well!! Ward, Lewis and whoever the cuck announcer were giddy in the first couple rounds. Damn what a beating Wilder took.

I wonder if Max Kellerman is on suicide watch.

Fury also coming out looking better considering Wilder disrespect him after the bout. It was funny to see black celebs/athletes heaping praise on Wilder in defeat.

As has been said before in this thread, Fury - Wilder 3!

The anti-whites use athletics to promote black supremacy. Events such as this directly contradict their narrative.

This fight became viral very fast, more than the Usyk-AJ fight 2 weeks ago.

You would think that the DWFs and anti-whites would tone down the trash talk as it backfires disastrously so often.
