Not saying a single punch would be weak, but not ATG strong.
To a large extent that is true.
What Louis did was as muchg down to technique as power. Even the damage that he inflicted might have been partly due to the fact that he caught people unexpectedly, and they didn't react.
Also against modern people it is better to compare Louis H2H with cruisers.
Louis was arguably the best destroyer of big heavyweights, that the division ever saw. He might have been a cruiser, but the guys he was destroying wern't.
