George Chuvalo (obviously)
Didn't know about Benton.
me neither for a long time, only stopped twice by Rodriguez and Briscoe (he wasn't prime then, either) and they were both RTDs
Hagler was never really down either. The Roldan one was a joke.
Jake La Motta?
Was Hagler ever officially knocked down? I'm drawing a blank.
Danny Nardico dropped LaMotta late in Jake's career.
Yes, by Juan Roldan. Like Chris said, the KD was a joke. Hagler was sort of bouncing away backwards when Roldan threw a punch that went around the back of Marvin's head and he sort of fish-hooked the back of his head pulling him down. But the ref counted it and gave Marv a count so it is official.
I dont remember Mikkel Kessler on the floor.
Forgot about Hagler and Roldan, just trying to stay official and all. One of Perez' worst blunders, calling that a knockdown.
Laporte is the first fighter I think of - and he fought a whos who of top 126 and 130.
notice what? lol
Theres an obscure name from the 80s.
