    This is exactly how it works. MSM doesn't want you to know it though.

    Muhammad Ali in both careers was never a devastating puncher, Iron Mike Tyson proved to be a devastating one punch knockout fighter.

    I don't think I heard that about Foreman after the Stewart fight but you could be right.

    That does remind me of Ray Mercer's gland blowing up against Bert Cooper. Looked like Ray had a horribly broken jaw in there. Something out of a horror movie. Only thing nastier than that was Sebastian Lujan's ear hanging by a thread against Antonio Margarito.

    This would've been a nice thread a month ago for Halloween, but I digress...

    ...not to forget Rahman’s acutely swollen head against Holyfield - that was truly ****ed up. I haven’t see the Lujan fight - I’ll check that out.

    And Denis Lebedev also got messed up pretty bad one time: -

    Oh dude, Rahman's dome was absolutely grotesque! The corner's use of that endswell was cringeworthy!!

    And poor Denis Lebedev. Imagine the agony he went through for days and even weeks after while laying around unable to move your head properly.

    Good calls!!

    EDIT: Most definitely check out Margarito-Lujan. Never seen an ear like that before or since!

    Just watched some brief HLs - you’re not wrong, Lujan’s ear was gruesome. The way it was hanging out made it look like he had one of Yoda’s ears transplanted to the side of his head.

    I would think Tyson, as he was the more explosive puncher of the 2, but Ali had better technique.
