Bowe vs. Holyfield

With fast hands, great power and a better chin, Bowe emerged as the top heavyweight contender when he got a shot at the smaller, but equally iron-chinned Holyfield, the undisputed champion. They waged a hellacious see-saw battle, which Bowe eventually won by unanimous decision. Round 10 is one of the best in history, when Bowe battered Holyfield and had him nearly out on his feet before Holyfield mounted a huge rally to dominate the later part of the round.
