If that couldn't floor him then I don't know what could. Chuvalo's chin was amazing.

McCall's was granite also but I don't recall him standing up to a huge flush shot like that from a puncher the calibre of Foreman. Lewis landed some decent punchers when McCall had his break down but it looked like he wasn't 100% committing to them either, probably because he didn't know what the **** Oliver was up to.

And McCall was stunned by Bruno and apparently Bruce Seldon of all people staggered him. Those are minor blips of course but it's enough for me to give a slight edge to Chuvalo.
Bruno was a HUGE puncher at times.

He just lacked the instinct and skills to make real good use of it.
