It was an impressive beat down that ended in the 10th.
He has fighting heart because of a beat down?

Foster-Tiger is probably the best example of this I can think of, but Addie has already mentioned it.

How about Benvenuti's stunning single-shot KO of the great Luis Manuel Rodriguez?

I agree! Very underrated fight. It's one of my favorite Tyson fights, because both fighters are in top form. Ribalta must have been on PCP that night--the shots he gets up from are incredible! People forget that Ribalta came very close to beating Bonecrusher Smith...some say he won.

Anyway, Tyson was the first man to KO Holmes, Thomas, and Tubbs---all men known for great chins.

Hearns-Duran would obviously be a top choice in this thread.

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.

Maybe Tyson - Douglas should be mentioned?

Not sure on that, Out of all of Tyson's loses, he never lost a fight on points.

Outside of Holyfiled II, (The bite) He was TKO or knockout evey time.

Ingemar Johansen's knockout of Eddie Machen deserves a mention.

One would think Machen had a glass jaw or something watching this one.

Many good mentions, but Robinson-Fulmer is still a clear nr. 1 for me. Stunning.

Glance the topic again, we're looking for ko's over extremely durable opposition.

Ali-Bonavena is quite impressive. Others knocked Bonavena down, but Ali was the only one who had him in that condition and stopped him.

Ok, so what you say? Bonavena + Foreman vs. LaMotta + Fulmer?

About equal.
Though the Fullmer finish is the best of the four.
