The good ones have been mentioned, but how's about Tony Janiro stopping Beau Jack? I think he was nearly half a stone heavier which might detract from it slightly, but Janiro wasn't a massive hitter whilst Jack had never been stopped up to that point.

So do you think it was a competitive struggle or an impressive beat-down?

Definitely. It was the unstoppable force vs. the (nearly) immovable object and the force came out on top. Berbick was outrageously durable and Tyson seemed to catch him by short-circuiting Berbick's control of his legs. Berbick was cogniscent enough to try to get up, but just couldn't move his legs properly.

One of the best knockouts of all time, if you ask me.

It's not a ko, but Holmes vs Cobb. I was feeling the punches thru th t. v. by the time the final bell rang. That's what made him into the badass from "Raising Arizona" ha. ha.

Didn't Snipes drop Berbick multiple times with his vaunted right hand?

Dropped Holmes like a sack of shit too, so...

What point are you trying to make? Ribalta was 6'6". He tried to fight Tyson and hung in there quite competitively. He took just about everything that Tyson dished out. It was Tyson impressively chopping down a tree really, breaking a mans will who was there to figh to the finish. Maybe the ref could have let it go, but Ribalta most likely would have been hurt badly in that final round. So to answer your question, it was a bit of both.

I believe Beau Jack was injured though. Much like what happened to Janiro himself against Kid Gavilan.

Watched this a year back. Remember Snipes dropping him once and he noticably staggered him a few times.

Pinklon Thomas was more durable than Trevor Berbick, so I rate that as Tyson's best stoppage over durable opponent. Thomas was virtually impossible to knock down.

In what way did that fight prove Tyson's fighting heart?
