INSPIRED by the previous article regarding the upcoming rematch between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev, I found myself thinking, “What are my favorite rematches of all time?” I have tried to narrow it down to my top five.

Here are the top five rematches that lived up to the hype and excitement of the first contest:

5) Sugar Ray Leonard vs Tommy Hearns: although eight years after their first legendary tussle the two kings came together once again for a fiercely fought contest which ended in a draw despite Hearns scoring two knockdowns.
