Default From the point of view of the victim's durability, what are the most impressive ko's?

The most impressive Ko's in history based purely upon the durability of the opponent, what are they? So for example, Robinson's TKO of LaMotta is frightening and brilliant, what KO's compare?

I suppose really, you can't beat Robinson-Fullmer.

That's a former welterweight champion, past his best, using a single punch to destroy the durable Fullmer, whose chin you'd have to rate an 8/10.

You would rate that above the LaMotta KO based upon the one-punch nature of the stoppage Manassa? LaMotta was a meaty middleweight after all...

Morales was at the end of the road but Pac's first stoppage over him must rate. Ali-Bonavena?

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.

Yeah. LaMotta, though a bit sturdier than Fullmer, was reeling, slashed and stunned. But Fullmer didn't know what was going on. He tried to get up but couldn't. In the dressing room, he didn't even know he'd been knocked out. One shot. It's the greatest knockout of all time, surely.
