Possibly. Snipes had a huge amount of power, although he didn't fight in a way that made the most of it.

John, don't forget, that was a one-punch knockout of a guy that had never been down (I lied, I think Hwang had him down), who was also winning the fight and was really never worth a damn after that fight. Maybe not as glaring an example as the others but I thought it needed to be included, although we probably never think of Curry in turns of LaMottish ruggedness.

Was that Tyson just beating on a guy or was Ribalta fighting back competitively as compared to most of Tysons fights?

I see your point, but Curry had been pretty recently beaten down badly and was moving up a sizable level in class. Hwang dropped him and he had been a bit buzzed here and there. There were question marks about his chin very early on.

I guess he wasn't the type to be sparked by a single left hook tho, certainly notable.

As mentioned I feel Fullmer being stopped with one punch by Ray Robinson is the most impressive. And although fighting above his best weight Foster knocking out Dick Tiger in the manner he did was hugely impressive. Also to a slightly lesser extent Benn vs Barkley every punch Nigel throw hurt Iran bad and Barkely had a quality chin. Awesome display of power by Benn.

Bonecrusher vs. Terrible Tim II was pretty damn surprising to end in the first round like that

Carbajal vs Arce dramatic come from behind ko for the aging Carbajal.
Arce vs Cob Castro Castro took all the best bombs from the best little guys througout his career but was kod by Arce.

The first fight to come to mind was Nunn-Kalambay.

Although technically a DQ, Jones-Barrera 1 is another one I think that deserves a mention. Barrera got a long count and was done.

The not yet 17 year old O'Grady was retired in his corner against Lopez without having been down and the stoppage to Watt was on a butt-induced vertical gash on his forehead. Again, without having been down. Curry had swapped leather with big bangers Starling, McCrory, Jones, LaRocca and nobody put a dent in him. He retired on his stool against Honeyghan, drained at the weight, without having been down. Both O'Grady and Curry were very durable.
