    well... are these knock downs fo real or not?yes... the summarize of a fight is a real part of the fight right? was carnera stopped and hurt badly? yes. you are trying to insinuate that this fight was close and was not a beating , nice try. schmeling vs louis was an early knock out, hardly a massacre. quarry was finished when he faced norton. not a fair match here. baer did hurt carnera once and again during the fight . you could argue about foreman vs frazier easily. or foreman vs norton, but my pick is baer vs carnera, these knock downs to a giant were brutal and savage, baer was a monster puncher with the right hand

    galento vs louis was brutal too, the fat man was drunk on the ring, but louis was very accurate so i was better for his rivals, because they were dreaming very fast , baer and foreman were not that accurate and they looked more savage.

    Agree that Baer was a monster puncher. He pounded poor carnera for 5 of the 11rounds but Primo took less punishment over 11 than hundreds of one sided losers in title fights because Baer took too many rounds off. Your definition of a massacre is not the same as those who saw the full fight. The summarised version is only a fair reflection if it is a fair reflection. I repeat 6 rounds of that fight was not a massacre and that is the larger part of the fight. Clear win yes. Massacre no.


    I meant to say Schmeling massacred Louis in their first fight. That was closer to a definition of a massacre than the second fight which is what most would call a blow out. Vitali kilitchko v danny Williams was also a horrible massacre worse than baer v Carnera because there were no competitive rounds.

    Vitali Klitschko on Lennox Lewis :yep

    (Please know that I'm sarcastic)

    Douglas - Tyson was except for 1 punch everything but competitive.
    The round after the knockdown showed how much Douglas was still hurt by that punch, he outlanded Tyson with his (now) wild punches 3-1.

    I don't hug the nuts of either bro, but that fight was rough on Briggs.

    Vitali may have not KO'ed him, but he hit him flush at will for 36 minutes.

    Your very much underestimating the damage that can be brought on from that.

    Vitali enjoyed that **** more than he should have. :-(

    .....i don't understand how anyone who has seen the film of the dempsey/willard fight can name any other above it....the rules allowed dempsey to just stand there and hit willard with everything in his arsenal.

    Louis wanted it to go the distance so he could keep hitting Galento for all the smack he'd been talking. Apparently Galento kept calling Louis at night with smack talk leading up to the fight and it wouldn't surprise me if he said the N word. Funny guy Galento

    Slavin - Kilrain, Ftizsimmons-Ruhlin, Ruhlin -T. Sharkey II were bad beatings of yesteryear.

    Vitali gave Danny Williams a pretty bad beating.

    The Klits have been involved in quite a few.

    Wlad vs Mercer was a horrendous one-sided beating. This was back when Wlad still let his hands go, and some of the shots he was cracking Mercer's jaw with were sickening -- shots that would have knocked out most heavyweights, and I don't mean that in the cliched sense, but very literally.

    Vitali vs Briggs was probably one of the worst of recent memory. Vitali was throwing the kitchen sink at Briggs, solid heavy handed shots, and Briggs just wasn't going down. Vitali ended up breaking bones in Briggs's face and sending him to the hospital because the referee and the cornermen were too dumb to pull the man out of there.

    Wlad vs Wach was a similar type of fight, though not quite so brutal.

    Vitali vs Danny Williams had knockdowns and wobblings galore, though it wasn't so punishing as some of the above.

    Yes Galento V Louis and Bowe Golota 2. Golota hit him with the kitchen sink, low blows, rabbit punches, laces to the face not to mention legal blows that had Bowe stumble around the ring like a drunken sailer for most of the fight.
