Default Re: Top Ten Heaviest Heavyweight Punchers

Shavers wasn't the heaviest puncher ever, nor a top 10.
Nor a top 10 hardest hitter.

His KO ratio on guys who were 215lbs or heavier is just 45%.
He didn't fight that many good guys and if he did most of the time he lost.

A good puncher means you can translate your power well into a KO which means you need accuracy, workrate, some power, speed etc.
(Difference between a puncher and hitter in my eyes, heaviest hitter only means you need to hit hard in my book)

Wlad, Lewis, Vitali are the first 3 who come in my mind.
Especially Vitali does an extreme amount without being a good one hitter.
We shouldn't forget Tyson either.

Too lazy to compose a top 10 but I would put Wlad at nr1, Lewis at nr2.
