Default Fighters who took Rocky like beatings and came back to win in dramatic style???

Harding over Andries
Marciano over Walcott

both of these fights come to mind. Which other fights did the winner absorb a huge amount of punishment before prevailing against the odds?

Izon - Jefferson - Izon took a massive beating, was on the verge of being stopped and was trailing all scorecards.

Wilson - Tshabalala - Wilson took some serious shots from hard-punching Tshabalala, was knocked down 2 times but still rallied to win in.

Thompson - Haye, Rothman, Sellers - Thomspon was no stranger to wars.

Bowe - Golota was quite dramatic.

The most outrageous example I've ever heard of..well at least in relatively recent years anyway...

and it's almost a token gesture to post these vids as they're next to unwatchable..lol

I sure wish there was Lester..it's almost like not having a vid at all with this one in such bad shape. It's almost unwatchable.

luke, I don't think Jake took any kind of beating from Cerdan in this fight.
