Which fighter has a knockout loss ratio that at first glance would have you believe they were chinny, when in actual fact they weren't as chinny as their record suggests?

Mike Tyson is a prime candidate. 6 losses, none of them went the full 12 rounds but Tyson was not chinny.

Hmm good question, have to think of some later. Just one example could be Bert Cooper, out of his 22 losses 14 were by KO, but if you watch his fights vs Moorer & Holyfield you can tell he can take a hell of a shot but he just got hit too much. Also he wasn't very dedicated so most of his losses probably came from a mix of exhaustion and mentally not really caring. He's been in with some big punchers.

Jake LaMotta was stopped 4 times, only got dropped once, and beat the count when he was.
