Solid puncher? Yes.
Hardest ever? Certainly not.
Joe wasn't the hardest punching heavyweight, but his left hook was lethal. Most fans who know the sport will tell you that. Still a hard puncher acknowledged by many of his opponents.
Single shot one punch power goes to Shavers, Baer and perhaps Fitz.
Most power in both hands combined, George Foreman is #1, followed by Liston and Tyson.
