18 November 1970Joe Frazier KOs Bob Foster(video)

Going into his challenge of Smokin’ Joe, Foster enjoyed a 20 bout winning streak, all but one of those victories coming by way of knockout, as well as a deserved reputation for being an incredibly powerful puncher, at least for the 175 pound weight class. Foster had already ventured into the heavyweight division and while he came away with a few notable victories, he had also been stopped by Doug Jones and Ernie Terrell. This did not bode well for his chances against Frazier. Nor did the fact the champion outweighed him by 21 pounds.

17 November 2001 Lennox Lewis KOs Hasim Rahman (video)

Unlike the previous fight between the two, Lewis came into fight prepared and dominated the duration of the fight. Lewis effectively and efficiently used his trademark left jab to take control of the fight and opened up a cut above Rahman's left eye in the first round. After easily winning the first three rounds on all three judges' scorecards, Lewis was able to win the fight a little past the midway point of round four. Lewis connected with a left–right combination that sent Rahman crashing to the mat. Rahman attempted to get back up but collapsed back to the mat at the referee's count of nine. Lewis was then named the winner by knockout, regaining his heavyweight titles in the process

Mutti, despite having a height and reach advantage, chose to go after Murphy. Both traded jabs and power shots, mostly in each other's range. Murphy was down in round 9 after taking a series of punches. An exhausted Mutti was dropped in round 11 by a right. In round 12, both fighters simultaneously exchanged right hands, and both fell to the canvas. The referee picked up a count for both fighters. Murphy struggled up to feet, but a completely exhausted Mutti laid hunched on the canvas, unable to beat the count. Mutti was kept down for 3 minutes afterwards by his handlers.

15 October 1976 Roberto Duran KOs Alvaro Rojas(video)

Duran came out aggressively and landed numerous power shots to both the body and head. Rojas tried to move and box, but he couldn't keep Duran off him. Duran backed Rojas to the ropes several times, forcing him to hold on to avoid punishment. Duran dropped Rojas with a right to the head, and Rojas was counted out at 2:17 of round one. The Associated press reported: "Rojas...went down on his face as though he had been shot. Doctors worked on him for about five minutes before he was able to stand on his own power."
