I wouldn't say it was one of his weakest defenses, not that it wasn't weak, but because Hopkins had fought the likes of Steve Frank and Bo James...

Glen Johnson had built up an undefeated record but he had truly fought nobody at that point.

Anyone see the second Robert Allen fight with Hopkins? That was a pretty good beat down and Hopkins finally stopped a guy who was very competitive in the first fight. Hopkins was such a different fighter back in those days.

Hell yeah!!! Watch the fight. Ribalta was an animal in that fight. He took a massive beating. One of Tyson's best performances in my opinion. Watch it, you'll see for yourself.

Joe Hipp's KO of Ribalta was more impressive.

I think Joe Louis destroyed a lot of opponents who were generally thought of as being fairly durable.. His early round destruction of Max Baer is probably one of the better examples that I can think of.

Well that was a little later on like 9 years later, and it Ribalta didnt show the type of staying power he did in the Tyson fight. Ribalta was stopped before, but he stood in and fought Tyson for 10 rounds. Anyone who thinks Tyson didnt have a fighting heart should watch that fight. It was an impressive beat down that ended in the 10th.

Not the best, but worth a mention is Tua vs Ruiz. Ruiz proved to have a pretty good jaw in never being seriously hurt during more than ten years of fighting top level opponents, yet Tua had him ready to go to the morgue in a mere 17 seconds!

Robinson/Graziano deserves a mention.

Tyson-Holmes is another good one. Regardless of Larry being a bit past prime, he was never stopped afterwards or before, and was decked by Shavers (massive punch as we all know) and managed to continue. Tyson had him OUT

Very impressive. Probably the most impressive performance against Ribalta out there, although I haven't seen Ruddock-Ribalta.
