Most of those HW matchups would have been some pretty fan friendly fights. Bruno and Morrison both had small gas tanks and Moorer and Ruddock both had great power, but chins that would crack, particularly MM's. I'd favor Bruno and Moorer to win. Tommy did not fair too well against guys once they've stood up to him and taken him past four. Frank could be just as aggressive and was pretty seasoned by the time they would have fought. Moorer had the shakier chin, but he was by far the more skilled fighter and Ruddock also had a tendancy to fold in the big fights. Bruno KO 10 and Moorer KO 6.

Doesn't Nigel Benn get an awful lot of credit as an ATG super middle? Personally, I loved Nigel as a fighter, but he failed against virtually all of the best fighters in his weight class: Eubank, Collins, Malinga, and Watson. Sure, he deserved the win against Eubank the second time and he got the W against Sugar Boy the first time (barely). I have to rate Benn behind Calzaghe, Eubank, Jones, and Collins for all time. He just didn't get enough big wins on his prime.

NIGEL BENN WAS BETTER THAN EUBANK AND COLLINS. BENN KNEW HE WASNT THE GREATEST BOXER BUT WENT OUT ON A LIMB TO WIN EVERY TIME AND TOOK ON ANYONE ANYWHERE. REMEMBER DOUG DE WITT, IRAN BARKLEY IN USA AND GREAT ALL BE IT TRAGIC WIN AGAINST MCCLELLAND.

I don't think anybody can deny Nigel Benn's heart as a fighter- okay he wasn't the greatest boxer but he was exciting, powerful and had alot of balls.
I don't think he failed against Eubank, Collins, Watson etc, they were all just different fighters of a similar calibre.
I always felt Collins fought Eubank and Benn on the slide and as for Watson, I always thought he was a beautiful boxer destined for great things.
 You could argue that Benn had more international success than any of his rivals with wins against DeWitt, Barkley and McClellan.
Either way, I never try to list the fighters of that UK era in order of greatness, I just remember how good they all were to watch.

How about Lennox Lewis vs. Riddick Bowe?  It would have been great to see a repeat of the Olympic final, but for the heavyweight championship.

I would of like to have seen Kostya Tzsyu fight De La Hoya or Mosely or Mayweather Jr or Cotto. They all ducked him as they passed through Super Lightweight/Jnr Welterweight. Judah fought him on false sense of confidence and got found out. Hatton had the balls to fight him but with every advantage he could get on his side, but a win is a win. Thats why Tzsyu was a real champion, he would travel anywhere and fight anyone.

Great fights that never happened?

Calzaghe Vs. Ottke
Eubank Vs. Toney

Jones Vs. Michaleskew (spelling incorrect i believe)
Sam Langford Vs. Jack Johnson (for the title)
James J. Braddock Vs. Max Schmeling
Tyson Vs. Bowe

And the greatest fight spanning the ages that never could have happened -

Sugar Ray Robinson Vs Sugar Ray Leanord.
