Oh, one thing I forgot: Lyle Alzado vs. Muhammad Ali, circa 1979 in Mile High Stadium. It was an exhibition bout, but sold a buncha' tickets. I had always thought it was an urban legend, but saw the full bout on YouTube a few years ago and thought: "well I'll be damned. That actually happened".

I suppose a modern comparison might be Von Miller vs. Anthony Joshua. People might buy tickets to see Von Miller fight "Some Guy".
