Default Re: From the point of view of the victim's durability, what are the most impressive k

Fullmer could be knocked down but he had almost a granite-like chin. It would be difficult to envision him being knocked out by one punch, had we not seen it happen.

LaMotta was brutalized in the last couple of rounds when he had ran out of gas but I was more impressed with LaMotta's chin than Robinson's punch there.

For me it's the Fullmer KO out of these two.

Hearns-Duran is impressive. Sure Duran was getting up there in age and weight but the man always had a dependable chin. Against Jorge Castro at 47 years of age, Duran took Castro's best punches flush on the chin and never went down. Hearns had Duran out on his feet after one round.
