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 S**** iron Johnson and the tough Bonavena. All others were stopped. Not bad.
