Default Name a heavyweight that you think could knock down George Chuvalo

Title says it all.

Keep in mind, prime George Foreman is noted to be the most devastating puncher in boxing history by many people. He couldn't score a knock down against George Chuvalo.

Lennox, Vlad,and any good punching heavyweight that could keep punching, didn't Bonavena do it. Thing is the REF usually stops it before George goes down. Foreman was more of a wide swinging clubbing heavyweight, Frazier sharper puncher....A good one punch pin-point guy could deck him or a relentless banger....you can only take so much punishment

Prime Tyson knocks him off balance then follows up with a combo to drop him

Foreman would've dropped him if the fight wasn't over in 4 rounds...

Joe Louis would get him. It might take a bit, as it did with Godoy, but he'll get Chuvalo out of there,

the question is would Chuvalo's face break up first or would he stand up to such a beating that the ref would have to step in.

Pure power guys are out, they could club him and force a stoppage, but to drop him would take fast surprising angles...Holyfield, Walcott, Louis, Tyson, Dempsey types have the best shot.

Here is a clip from the Bonavena-Chuvalo fight that shows one of the knockdowns.

It occurs at the 2:48 mark but you can see it in slow motion at 3:48 also.

Chuvalo did fall backwards and no doubt would have hit the canvass if not for the ropes. But did it come from a punch or push? Looks like a combo punch-push.

Anyone could if hit right but Frazier and Foreman , who both pounded him did not .. Oscar may have once in a flash manner but it was so close to a slip it was not registered as one ..

Chuvalo, Mercer, McCall .. these guys had absolutely monster chins ..
