Default what fighters who've been ko'd multiple times

were still respected and feared throughout their careers. Mike Tyson is the first who comes to mind for me.

Multiple... as in more than once!

Lennox Lewis only lost twice, he was stopped both times (LKOby2 McCall and LKOby4 Rahman), and was definately well respected and feared even after both of those losses. He did avenge both of these losses.

Mike Tyson was respected and feared after his first two losses (both by KO), not so much after his 3rd KO loss. He was stopped 5 times in his career.

Thomas Hearns was stopped by Leonard, Hagler, and Barkley... he was well respected and feared even after his 3rd KO loss. He did draw with Leonard and lost a SD to Barkley. He never fought a rematch with Hagler. He was also stopped by U. grant due to an injured ankle... but by that time Hearns was way past prime.

Duran was stopped by Leonard (No Mas) and Hearns (KO2) but was still feared and respected after the KO loss to Hearns... not so much after the TKO loss to Pat Lawlor.

Cool question.

I am looking at fighters who were stopped in their primes or after primes but were still contenders. End of career KO's don't count for me. Usually by that time everyone knows the fighter is no longer great.

Archie Moore: KO'ed in 6 by Jimmy Bivens and KO'ed in 8 by Ezzard Charles.

Sonny Liston: The way his Ali KO's happened and how he continued his career after shows me that he was still feared and respected.

Jersey Joe Walcott: He was stopped by Abe Simmon and Joe Louis, yet he still won the heavyweight title.

Comparatively few.

By the time it has happened multiple times, they are usually assumed to be on the slide.

By few, I meant twice or more. However, I am hard pressed to think of more than 3-4 names of fighters whos stoppage losses were basically ignored and still considered heavy favorites in most of their fights. Even in there rematches.

Tippy Larkin, a Willie Pep clone, was a great boxer who got KOd 10 times

I do not think Floyd Patterson ever lost the respect of most people. It helped that he came across as a class act.

Skins has provided a good name to try topping.

Was he ever feared though? Bob Foster retained both fear and respect throughout his career.

I agree that Patterson was a class act. He was a true gentleman. I respect him for that.

I don't respect him as a fighter. I remember him as champion and he wasn't thought too highly of by anyone I knew. He cherry picked his opponents and couldn't stay on his feet.
