chuvalo
ali
mccall

stribling
foreman
schaaf
baer
uczudun

Toney, sure he was a very, very pathetic heavyweight.. But come on, his chin is undeniable..

Tua and McCall def. stand above the pack when it comes to the more modern though..

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).

He fought many punchers, even when he was shot (Frazier, Moorer, Briggs, Savarese, Morrison, Cooney, Cooper, Lyle, etc.), for me, he belongs to that list...

Luigi, so far as I can determine, only Tony Galento fought more than 100 bouts in the heavyweight division before being knocked down. That was in match 105, when Joe Louis dropped him in round two, for the only official knockdown of Galento's 110 fight career. For whatever it's worth, Galento also brawled in an era of five and six ounce gloves, and was not exactly gifted with the defensive elusiveness of a Benitez or Whitaker. (Jack Dempsey did knock Two-Ton out cold in a sparring session, testimony to Jack's awesome power, even in retirement.)

He wasn't a champ or a contender, but Ross Purity belongs to Top 10, IMHO, could be argued Top 5, probably.
