Gargantuan mismatch of epic proportions.

A lot of the examples I was thinking of have already been said. One I'm surprised no one has mentioned is Jerry Quarry going to a knee after a Frazier body shot.

Virgil Hill had a good chin but was kod by Jones with a body shot.
His only other loss inside the distance was when he didnt come out for the 9th against Mormeck.

The only time Jose Luis Ramirez was ever stopped was early in his career against Ruben Olivares, from a bodyshot.

Johnny Tapia's only stoppage was from a bodyshot against Sandro Marcos.

Hoya against Hopkin's, though Pacquiao beat the shit out of him en route to a stoppage years later.

Pacquiao's only two stoppages were from early career bodyshots, including a straight right to the body when he was against the ropes.

That was when he was ready to move up two weight classes in his next fight however, severely weight drained and in front of a hostile crowd. He may of just said **** it and wanted to get out of there early considering how badly drained he was. End of the fight did seem a bit off. *Shrugs*
To be fair, I saw one of the stoppages Pacman suffered and it was not on the up and up to me. It looked clear that he was his directly hit on the cup, went backwards and cracked his head on the canvas and they stopped the fight. That should have been ruled a no contest or even DQ. Poor kid was a teenager and I remember the commentator saying Pac's arrogance was to blame and that a head shot did it. I sure as hell didn't see anything they were talking about.

Oops, I replied too fast. You'd already beat me to it.

This was Pac's second KO loss, for anyone who hasn't seen it:

BORKED

For obvious reasons, he never fought at this weight class again.
