Has to be the Marcos Maidana fight and specifically the right and left hook to the body in that first round. Always loved that combination since.

The Marcos Maidana fight was stunning, it was a fight when he dismissed lazy claims that he was “chinny” by showing tremendous grit to come through an all-out war. On a personal level, he was always great with the media and never shied away from talking after his defeats. Many boxers could learn from him.
