Greatest fight that never happened?

All this talk recently about Mayweather vs. Pacquiao has got me thinking.

In you're opinion would be the greatest fight ever that never, or could never happen?

(Any combat sport)

For me it's Wanderlei Silva vs. Shogun Rua under PrideFC rules. I honestly believe had it happened it would have easily been one of the most exciting, violent fights of all time.

Update:

@Dayne I've often thought about that fight. I think Ali by decision or late rounds TKO for few reasons.

1: Ali had a huge reach and height advantage, and knew how to utilize it effectively.

2: He could take some serious damage, he was only TKO'd once past his prime, thus taking away Tyson's only significant advantage.

3: He fought and beat Foreman, who was pretty similar to Tyson.

Just my opinion of course, we'll unfortunately never know^

    Alright, my list is limited to fights that could have happened and not "dream fights" between fighters from different eras so the likes of Ali-Tyson or Tyson-Marciano, etc. are out of the equation.

    1. Foreman vs. Holmes

    2. Tyson vs. Tua

    3. Frazier vs. Norton

    4. Holmes vs. Frazier

    5. Leonard vs. Pryor

    6. Marquez vs. Morales

    Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Aaron Pryor wow! Lenard wanted nothing to do with him and neither did Tommy Hearns.
