Default Re: Top Ten Heaviest Heavyweight Punchers

A very difficult question if you are solely talking about one-shot power, because an awful lot of heavyweights might have had punch power equal to a more renown puncher, be it a shavers or cleve williams, - but they didnt have the technique, timing, balance, management to nuture them, discipline or dedication to breakthrough into legitimate contendership - someone like bob satterfield
might exemplify this (?)

Perhaps a

Blue Lewis
Jose Urtain
Jimmy Thunder

Could do the Job just as well....if they could land square on the chin ?

Renown fighters may also Bring that intimidatory factor that lesser
"Hit & Hope" Merchants may lack ?

I think it was Al Lewis who was taken to a Detroit car factory in the late 60's
for a ring feature on "Punch Power" and allowed to haul off on a wired-up crash test Dummy - it registered Severe but survivable ! - unlucky for Al his ring opponents usually were not that static and compliant !

The Racking up of a high KO percentage has more involved that just "punch Power" and is not a great indicator really, quality of opporsition is a big factor of course...if not we might all be putting Lamar Clark on that Pedestal !
