I think the real key here is that he had the testimonies of Larry Holmes and Jimmy Young ( both of whom faced ****ey ) as being the hardest puncher they ever fought. Muhammad Ali had a lot to say about Shaver's power too. Does any of this mean that Shavers hit harder than ****ey? No. But my point is that there is certainly more to go by than ****ey knocking out a journeyman with a body shot on youtube.
