Default Re: Gerry Cooney - the hardest puncher ever?

How can anyone designate who was the hardest puncher ever ? Can't be done, and is meaningless...In baseball for example ,a Dave Kingman hit a ball as far as ANYONE, but was a low average hitter...Give me a Joe Louis who absolutely stunned you with the first punch and obllterated you with follow up combinations, IF NEEDED...As a Ray Robinson did...For example a Julian Jackson had crushing one punch power but was NOT a great middleweight...Cooney for example looked AWESOME when he kod Ken Norton, but
as later proven was not a great fighter...But I think he had a better left-hook to the body than anyone including Joe Frazer, but lacked Frazer's resolve and toughness...
