    [reflist][/reflist]Chuvalo might've been before Tyson's time, but there were still a few good chinsters in his era.

      Chuvalo to the ref after the stoppage against Foreman: "What are you, nuts?".
      Who cares that Chuvalo wasn't happy about it? The Ref has a responsibility to save a fighter from his own courage. The corner won't always take that step. Jeff Lacy was finished by Calzaghe because Lacy had a Brave Manager....
      My point was that nobody ever knocked Chuvalo down. If Tyson had done it, then you might say he's the hardest-punching guy Chuvalo ever faced. As it stands, the hardest hitter Chuvalo ever faced was life itself. He has had a rough ride.

          Yes, I'm broadly aware of how Life outside the ring treated him so I agree with your rough ride comment.

          As an aside, one thing comes to Mind. When Tyson was on his way up, he fought Reggie Gross, who can be seen swinging away at Tyson. The latter shows excellent elusiveness in bobbing and weaving and then nails Gross with a single hook to KO him. The next time I read of Gross, he'd been sentenced for taking up other employment. He'd become a hitman and was jailed for life. I suppose he thought that easier than facing Tyson a second time.
