    Currently Bivol has yet to be knocked down. From the past i dont think Girard, Barber or Del Valle were down. Anyone else?

    I think Henry Maske. He struggled in the first fight against Graciano Rocchigiani and was down in the 12th round. Nevertheless, it was more of a shove and no official knockdown.

    I was going to say Spinks or Tarver but I remembered Qawi dropped Spinks in the 8th round and Tarver was dropped by Harding. Zsolt Ederi is a criminally underrated light heavy that was never dropped to my knowledge.

    Okay, not that easy to find someone. Do you have a source for Henry Maske's knockdown against Andrea Magi? I can't find anything about it.

    Well, okay, I can't find it and I wouldn't be sure about it. Maybe there will be the fight on youtube one day.

    Sad but European fighters were neglected back then

    That guy was kind of crazy. Definitely not "a source".

    Tarver was down against Hopkins too.

    Braxton stood on Spinks toes when he went down.
