    Surprised no one’s mentioned Hearns-Duran yet (unless I missed it).

    I’d add Cuevas-Jorgen Hansen and Leotis Martin-Sonny Liston.

    Whiterspoon - Eklund deserves a mention

    Lewis v Ruddock KO, Ruddock's face landed before the rest of his body.

    Duran seemed to have left some business savvy after the KO or at least the entrepreneurial spirit

    Mercer had a lot of those. Almost like he cranks up his punches as the guy is out cold or near it. Hearns when he stopped Duran could have hit him again and he backed off and let him fall. I don't get making it worse.

    I've always liked the kayo's where the dispatched fighter falls to the canvas as though dead....a completely instant knockout.

    Julian Jackson vs Terry Norris is an example, Ben Tackie vs Robert Garcia is another.

    Would have been better if they showed it in 4K hd.

    I have to give it up for Foreman-Frazier. That was just...talk about looking invincible.

    I'm sure Dempsey fans here can think of another.

    Can’t see Frazier getting up 6 times against Tyson or Louis though.
