Joe Grim. Fighters like Gatti, LaMotta, Holyfield, etc. had skill. Even though they weren't defensive masters, they still had offensive prowess to fend off their opponents. Joe Grim didn't. He didn't have anything, and that's why he was called "The Human Punching Bag". He didn't have power or offensive/defensive skill; he was just tough as all hell.

He was a middleweight and fought some huge punchers like: Philadelphia Jack O'Brien, Joe Walcott, Joe Gans, Bob Fitzsimmons, Jack Blackburn, Johnny Kilbane, and Jack Johnson. He wasn't stopped by any of these fighters.
