Stopping Quarry twice, stopping Ellis, knocking Foster the **** out, stopping Chuvalo in 4, knocking Ali down.

Not the best punching resume of all time, but a very good puncher anyway.
Up to his first fight with Ali, the only ones that went the distance with him were Scrap iron Johnson and the tough Bonavena. All others were stopped. Not bad.
