    For me it's Walcott vs Charles III. That uppercut was absolutely disturbing.

    I can’t remember the knock down or which fight it was I believe it was the first one. Anyways Ingo landed a huge blow on an obviously finished Patterson who was stumbling away completely unaware of where he was- right in the back of the head. Sh1tty referees.

    Seeing a worn out Joe Louis get laid out like that against Marciano is pretty tough

    I think it was a left hook that knocked Ezzard charles out in the third Walcott fight, not an Uppercut.
    I would say it was when Earnie Shavers caught Holmes with his herculean, thunderously hard right hand. But Holmes somehow got up and kept fighting.
    How did Larry's head stayed on its shoulders? We will never know.

    Simple, cause Shavers's power is way overrated, that's why Larry got up.

    Julian Jackson's knockout of Herol Graham was brutal.

    Thomas Hearns knockout of Roberto Duran was as brutal as it was unexpected. You could literally hear the thudding sound of the impact of the punch as it landed.

    Respectfully disagree. Earnie Shavers is in general an overrated fighter, yes, but his power ?
    Well, when you have Muhammad Ali, who fought a murder's row of big punchers, such as Liston, Foreman, Frazier, Mac Foster, Lyle, Cleveland Williams saying Shavers hit harder than them all, you have to say no, that Shavers' power is anything but overrated

    OK if Shavers' power was "way overrated" because Holmes got up. Is Tyson's power overrated because Holmes got up twice against him? Also, is Liston's power overrated seeing as Patterson got up twice as well? Or do they get passes, because you have a hard-on for them?

    Apart from Frazier, the rest never got to land on Ali the way Shavers did.
