Who is Roper? And why is he rated #1? Am I missing something?

I made my list very quick and in no order. Bob Roper was a fighter in the 20s, he fought the likes of Smith, Greb, Fulton, Miske, Battling Levinsky, Weinert, Gunboat Smith, Moran, Gibbons, Brennan, etc., he was only one time KO´d against Fulton, a big puncher, they fought multiple times, Roper was not a great fighter, but he had definitely an iron chin, over 100 fights with only 1 KO-loss...

Oh, Bob Roper--I see, in no order. OK. I understand now.

Because when I would make it from place 1 to place 20, well, I would probably still sit here tommorow...


btw, do you perhaps have a relatively unknown fighter who could belong to this list?

Yes, it was impressive, but IMO Thomas always had a good chin in his prime...

Karol Sys--I think he was only stopped twice in about 115 bouts and both were on cuts.

Very good call! I know the Belgian, he fought over 150 times I believe. And he also fought good opponents like Valdes, Neuhaus, Moore, etc...

Also, if Ali is in there, Holyfield should prolly get a mention too.. Not dropped a ton, but it's happened (same case with Ali).
Holyfield was dropped more often, but the deciding factor is him getting knocked out, badly, by Bowe in their third fight. Ali is a definite step above Evander in the chin department.

I think Peter has a better chin at heavyweight than Toney
