    What great matchups between a fading great and his succesor? Particularily where the older fighter acknowledges as such.

    Im having trouble thinking of old ones, my memory not so great. Chavez-DLH 2 was kind of like that. Chavez put forward a great effort, but couldnt suppress DLHs strength. After the fight, very gracious.
