I've heard that said more than once around here. What examples of it are there?

Making McCall go into a shell?

Shocking Tyson pretty bad?

Bruno had a clubbing power, he lacked snap in his punches. A lot of his KO's came from hitting people in the temple, and he was very good at stopping those fighters rated 15 to 30 in the world who normally take people the distance. But against the top level all he really had was his incredible physical strength.

If you could survive the first half dozen rounds, and you were anything resembling world class, you beat Bruno.

But to answer your question the defeat of Gerrie Coetzee was probably his most devastating and his defeat of Bugner his most impressive.
