Re: Gerry Cooney - the hardest puncher ever?
He was a harder puncher than Shavers, certainly.
Hardest puncher of all time? Impossible to say. Gun to my head I'd say Tua, but when you get to that level of power it just becomes pointless quibbling. Gerry looked incredibly heavy handed, and got a lot of weight behind his shots. I can't imagine what it would have been like to have been hit by him.
