    Jake LaMotta- tough as nails, almost impossible to knock down, much less KO
    Rocky Marciano-Never lost a pro fight and KO'd something like 46 out of 49
    Max Baer-killed a guy in the ring with gloves on---nuff said
    Roberto Duran-destroyed just about everyone at lightweight, mean and nasty
    Mike Tyson-if he couldn't beat you, he'd eat you.

    I imagine a no-nonsense, riled up Max Baer would be more hell than average....that was just the unfocused, warm and fuzzy clownish side of him that we saw in most of his fights. He was capable of being lethal IMO.

    Exchanging with a prime angry Roberto Duran was a way to quickly KOed.
