Allow me to be a more adept nuisance.

1. Hagler, in my estimation, and judging from our previous discussions, perhaps in yours too, belongs in a class by himself. He didn't just take monster shots, they almost always weren't even acknowledged. Guys who stop what they are doing or just take the punishment (Tex Cobb. Chuvalo. Almost every other celebrated iron-chin who ever stepped into the ring) -just don't compare to that.

2. I'm unclear on why Napoles is an elite here.

The Toy Bulldog needs a mention.

Ross was never counted out in nearly 80 fights, and that includes the beat down he got from Armstrong.

He had a hell of a chin. Ever seen the Monzon fight?

After Seales lost to Hagler in 1974, Boxing Illustrated asked him did he want to fight Marv again, he said: "yes, but I'll box more next time. No use trying to knock this guy out, his head's made of rock".

As far as I know, Napoles was only legitimately floored in one bout: his TKO win over Carlos Hernandez.

Same (Hernandez was a wicked puncher as well) - although I've heard a rumour he was floored in at least one more. Might have been by the poster Mantequilla.

Well, he was given an official count against Stracey but that was a slip. Maybe Mantequilla has more info?

Wasn't that one, it was by someone else.

Sure did... and he took shots that rattled my teeth.

But he didn't see round 8.

Duran, slightly smaller than Jose, caught holy hell from Barkley who was arguably a bigger puncher than Monzon. And continued on. Barney Ross was never stopped and went down once against McClarnin and didn't even take the count. He survived Armstrong (although I suspect that there was an assist in that one)... damn near 80 fights.

In Napoles' defence...

... Dundee pulled him out because of the punishment he was taking (it was round seven he didn't see though, although technically he didn't see round eight either).

And you know 'the' hook Barkley landed on Duran? Napoles took several punches like that in the sixth round alone by Monzon. Without looking at the tape I can distinctly remember three one-two-threes to the head that started off the whole assault, and a massive right hand shortly after that landed flush as Napoles was backed to the ropes. And that was only a third of it, he took another load like that as well yet was still standing at the bell. I should imagine a more youthful Napoles would have handled it even better.

Also, McLarnin was a featherfist in comparison to Carlos Hernandez, who had a right hand like Tony DeMarco.

But Barkley didn't hit Duran as many times on the button in such a short period of time as Monzon did with Napoles. He tatooed his face non-stop for two consecutive rounds. Ange Dundee pulled him out because he couldn't see out of one eye.

I have seen a good part of the fight with Armstrong, Ross did ok in the early part, before Armstrong just over swarm Ross, and started beating Ross around the ring. He did not let up. The film doesnt show Armstrong holding Ross up.

Hard to say. But I agree that both, Camacho and JCC, would be also great choices.
