He couldn't KO Ali or any of the fighters with a name who praised his supposedly ¨OMFGBBQ¨ power. Aside from jelly jawed Norton they all survived and beat his ass. The extent of Shaver's power is highly exagerated by old farts and nostalgists, like they do with everything else from the past.
These people are no different than Bruce Lee enthusiasts who go on about various circus tricks he performed. Look at the people Shavers KO'd. Would Lennox Lewis be the p4p hardest puncher of all time if he fought D level cans for 70 fights and KO'd them all?
