    Name some fighters who were never stopped, them name some fighters, within the same weight class, who you think would stop them or have the best chance of stopping them in a fantasy fight.

    Example: Floyd Mayweather and Thomas Hearns

    Definitely not the most exciting guy to watch but one that was tough to KO. He had over 300 amauter fights and was never stopped in any of those either.

    Ali's chin was carved out of a neutron star. I don't think anyone stops any Ali short of the ruined version that Holmes fought.

    I guess I'll be that guy. Rocky Marciano loses via KO to multiple post 1950's heavyweights. Sorry folks, he is still great just not the invincible dude that some of you think.

    Multiple guys beat him but knocking him out is tough to call due to how he fought. He was so good at fighting at space and always moving out of range. I think speed would mean more than power against him. Prime Roy would be my best guess.

    If a fighter was never stopped, then I almost never pick anybody to stop them.

    Why introduce any unnecessary assumptions into your prediction?

    That's dumb. So you think Marquez goes 12 with Tommy Hearns, do you?

    It's not so much thinking that he would, as not wanting the job of demonstrating that he wouldn't.

    I like to keep the pick simple.
