Default Who took the worst beating in victory?

How bout foreman against stewart. he looked like a friggin alien just saw this fight for the 1st time and george's refusal to sit down was pretty stupid. dundee couldn't effectively use the end-swell. lampley, merchant and everyone else wrote him off and said he should reitre. amazing how he would win the title in less than 2 years.

Willard was supposedly pretty beaten up against Johnson. How it's going to be when someone takes almost every round of a 20 something round fight until you gas out.

Tommy Morrison broke his hand and cheek I think against Hipp?

Those pictures of George Foreman remind me what a great fighter he was.
There was no quit in George, and he's 43 years old there.

Truely amazing indeed. The only "black mark" in that sense is that he didn't get up in time against Ali. But some of the punishement he took at an age when he was supposed to sit by the barbeque or sell grills.. incredible.



Riddick Bowe took an aweful lot of punishement in his second "victory" over Golota.

Joe Frazier took a massive beating when he beat Ali and was never the same again.

I watched a lot Johnson/Willard; it was just very, very boring. Willard got away as lightly as anyone could except to punishment wise for a 26 round World Heavyweight Championship fight IMO.

Tommy did indeed take a lot of punishment in the Hipp fight. I used to know a poster on another forum who knew Tommy well. And his little joke always was: Why was Morrison better than Ali? Because he broke his jaw in a bout as well (against Hipp); but won!

As for the thread, I would add Hearns/BarkleyI

Nelson against Gans (twice in two months in 1908.)

Wolgast 42 round win over Nelson was considered a brutal fight.

And as has been mentioned Jeannete had to get up from nearly 30 knockdowns to beat Sam Mcvey in Paris in 1909...

Bobby Chacon's face after the second Boza Edwards fight was tough to look at.

He was mentally beaten even before the actual Ali fight. He had an entire continent against him and he was so paranoid he had his food flown in because he was terrified it was being poisoned.

He got right up after Ali dropped him and walked back to his corner.

He was just mentally beaten, I'd say.

I think the Johnson Willard fight is MOSTLY a MYTH in regards to Johnson beatin Willard from pillar to post, until he gas out. As said before, there was hardly no action, outside of a few rounds, that being the 17th, the 25th and of couse the 26th rounds.

I agree that Frazier took bad beating in first Ali fight. Announcer Dunphy comments several times how bad his face looks.

Ali took a real beating in Manilla against Frazier although it was mostly to the body.

I remember watching the first Pryor Aguello fight and wondering what was keeping Pryor on his feet. Arguello hit him on the point of the chin dozens of times with that dynamite right hand and Pryor just walked right through it. After their two fights I don't think either of them had anything left.
