A little late to the party but here's the first that came to my mind:
Day one Ted "Wildcat" Grant Versus Cassius "Mohamed Ali" Clay by Darwyn Cooke New Frontier #5
The punches are just so wonderfully done that you swear you can feel the impact yourself. The flashes of pain as the blows land and the way the muscles stand out like they were hewn from marble is just stunning.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

Im late too, but so glad I found this.
Day One Captain America vs Captain America
I may have mentioned a time or two, but this 4 issue story culminating in the above is my all time favorite. The good vs evil Cap premise really did something to my pre-teen brain, I guess my first holy crap comicbook moment. You know, those issues that never leave you, reminding you why you love the medium so much.
It was the year of fire… the year of destruction… the year we took back what was ours. It was the year of rebirth… the year of great sadness… the year of pain… and the year of joy. It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed.

Please excuse my tardiness. Didn't think I'd be able to participate, but here I am. I'll be brief.
10. Hulk vs. Rhino or "The Importance of Making a Good Impression"
By: Gary Friedrich, Marie Severin/Frank Giacoia
Incredible Hulk 104 (1968)
Rhino gets a fancy new suit and a gig abducting some scrawny egg-head. Unfortunately, his target is Bruce Banner who Hulks out on an airstrip while being loaded into a helicopter. All hell breaks loose as the two heavy-hitters go at it and then this happens:
Boom shaka-laka! Note the Rhino-shaped indentation in the runway. Great work by Marie and Frank.
