LaMotta I wish his fight against Satterfield was filmed apparently he stood some huge punches and was totally unfazed which is amazing considering Satterfield could make claim to being the hardest hitter under 200lbs.

Yeah, I can't find that fight anywhere, not even on the blessed YOUTUBE.

I have to go with Chuvalo. He was hit by heavyweights, and very hard at that.

Chuvalo.

LaMotta's chin was shown to be breakable.

I thin Chuvalo also had more fights than LaMotta as well.

Eventually, yes. Took a ong time to get him to that point, though, and it's arguable that he took more punishment than Chuvalo over the long haul, but I tend to agree with you on this one. Chuvalo gets my vote. He ain't no Juan Laporte, but he could hang.

You think LaPorte's chin is better...?

Just curious. I know most knowledgeable fans rank LaPorte as having a top five chin.

By the way, check out the thread I just bumped when you get the chance, sanchezfan. Question for you in there.

Chuvalo was a heavyweight. There are more knockouts per fight in the heavies than any other division. Chuvalo took tremendous shots and never even wobbled. I know he was overwhelmed by Foreman and Frazier and they were both valid stopages. However, even then, Chuvalo was on his feat and in his mind atleast, ready to continue.
