Default Fighters That Were Never Even Stunned

Chuvalo comes to mind. TKO'ed, but he always seemed aware, even when George had him in a corner beating the shit out of him.

I've never seen McCall even wobbled. Punched across the damned ring from the force of punches by Bruno, but never stunned.

David Tua?

Wasn't it McCall that once started crying in the ring in a vary
bizarre situation against Lennox?

That was him.

He didn't have some random breakdown... He was dragged out of drug rehab by the wonderful people running boxing and... well...

It caught up with him.

Chuvalo was stunned by Foreman, he had no idea where he was and how to protect himself.

Mccall has to be up there, the guys been boxing since 84 or 85 and has never tasted the canvas, and fought some pretty powerful guys along the way, off the top of my head, Lewis twice, Bruno, Buster Douglas, Sinan Sam, Maskaev, Williamson, Holmes, Tucker, and Seldon. I think the thing that impressed me most was that he was able to stand there with his hands down and let a prime Lewis throw punches at him, and he never even was hurt by the punches, I understand Lewis didnt fully unleash, but I cant imagine letting a guy like Lewis have open shots, and the fact he didnt even get hurt by any of his punches.

Alot of people including myself started questioning Lewis' killer instinct after that fight, Lewis himself said on a espn interview that he didnt know what to do, so he just stuck to boxing and didnt want to put himself in harms way. It was a weird sight, but as a championship fighter he should of tried harder to finish of his oppenent, especially when a guy has his hands at his waist and refused to throw punches back.

Tua was floored in RahmanII; although unoffical, I guess it shows him stunned.

Chuvalo had his eye lid folded in the Frazier bout, he quiet rightly looked stunned.

McCall has admitted to being floored at least five times in sparring, but then everyone who has had a world class career and sparred properly has been decked.

Floored by Tyson, I believe.

He's also floored Mike... with a bodyshot.

I bet mccall was 'stunned' when he saw his take home pay on some of don kings promotions.
And i will bet senya was stunned when his pin up boy was kicked to **** by tarver.

Roldan floored him as well; and despite his protests, the ref was in his rights to call it; it was a slip, but Roldan did catch him, as Hagler regained his balance.
