It's a little before my time, but Mohammed Ali's boxing matches were huge, worldwide events. Connors-McEnroe or Borg - McEnroe at Wimbledon were big showdowns too.

I would think that Barcelona - Real Madrid is a more well known rivalry than any between two teams in Argentina. Barca - RM matches are known as "El Classico" and they are always a big deal, especially when they are in a tournament.

In American football, the biggest rivalries are among teams in the same conference (Bears - Packers, Cowboys - Redskins) so they can't meet in a Super Bowl.
